Just to let you know, Blencarn has been restocked and officially opened today.
Might give it a week to let them settle in then give it a go, I need to get my arm pulled and it’s a bit cold on the rivers just yet.

Had a five hour C&R today at Blencarn, thick snow on Crossfell behind and a strong South Easterly.
It was like the North Sea at times.
Managed 11 before lunch then another five afterwards, so 16 to the net, dropped three and missed half a dozen takes.
All on a sort of damsel lure with a black marabou tail.
Tried a large daddy on the top as a few fish were topping, but had no effect.
Fish were in top form plenty of leaping and tail walking.

It will be nice to meet up again ; I can't see any problem with that as you can see the LLs are keeping an eye on it.

Well done Steven you did well under difficult conditions. Are you sure you want a bear hug off Noel he squeezes all the air out of your lungs?

I’ve only just recovered from the last one Alban, but he means well.:D
Most of my fish today came from the wooden jetty you were on last time we met, wind was serious, but it kept me on my toes.

Think I’m having another visit on Wednesday if any of you lads are free. Been tying a few Dung flies as there were a few on the water last week.
