SteveN, what got me was we fished this very same stretch only last week and saw nothing. Yet today ..... this was old stuff and we had to remove silt, gravel and stones before we could remove them.
All part of lazy fishing. I've seen 2 seater settees, quilts and cushions in the river so relax and take it easy.
Been a very bright one but not as cold as expected, bit of a breeze at times.
Been on the Aire at Skipton, water very, very clear (and b-i-l didn't help).
I fished a French leader and double nymph, fish didn't want to play though, very little showing though we did see a good size chub that b-i-l had a got at, but it just slinked off. I got into a nice rhythm (though had to wait for breeze to drop so as not get bow in the line), I was tucked down in the bank and low so as not cast my shadow across the river to where I was drifting the nymphs and b-i-l walked along opposite bank high up next to the river. Game over!! Anyway we didn't blank as we both managed one small grayling each.
Well done Noel and SteveN
Sorry to hear of you're dad's fall SteveN, lets hope nothing too untoward. Good job the boiler got done with the weather that's been forecast to arrive next few days.
What are you sitting on Paul with no sofa? Sofology used to be good when they were CSL.

Sorry to hear about your dad, hope he's on the mend. Is that rod a Kuying Teton? I did a bit of bfs style fishing last autumn and they came highly recommended.
Thanks. Dad is coming home todaySorry to hear about your dad, hope he's on the mend. Is that rod a Kuying Teton? I did a bit of bfs style fishing last autumn and they came highly recommended.
That's good to hear. I had a few similar rods, a tsurinoya one at a similar weight rating to yours. I ended up going back to a fixed spool setup in the end but the light bfs rods are great fun.Thanks. Dad is coming home today
Yes the rod is the Kuying Teton 522sul. Casting weight 0.8 to 3gm. Great little rod. Very sensitive. Got enough back bone to tame decent fish. Great rod.
