    Douglas, that river looks as clear as the one I was on tonight

    On my trout only stretch this evening, the river was gin clear though still about 10cm higher that Iíd like and quite fast on some of the better bits, it still looks like someone has scrubbed the river bed with a brush and bleach, had 5 tiny browns not much bigger than my middle finger and another about 8oz to a 18s ptn and an 16s red tag, also got rid of a couple of escapee rbís to.

    Had a day on the river yesterday and gave my cut down DT line a work out. So you can cut just over 3' off and it still fishes well.The river was up from where it should be at this time of year but running clear. There was no sign of fish rising so I started with the nymph a hot spot PTN. The only interest at first was from small Grayling.River fishing for brown trout 2019-dsc00156-jpg Like a fool I had listened to Carol kirkwood and believed her when she said it was going a nice dry day. So decided to leave my coat in the car I had been fishing for about 2 hours When the wind got up and there was the mother of all squalls. Luckily I found shelter under a bend willow and some balsamRiver fishing for brown trout 2019-dsc00161-jpg After the squall the river came to life as always happens, with olives hatching off and fish rising. This lasted for about 1/2 hour and I took 3 small Trout on dry fly. Then it stopped as if someone had flicked a switch. I went back onto the nymph and finished the day with around 15 TroutRiver fishing for brown trout 2019-dsc00168-jpg For part 2 the Grayling go to the Grayling thred

    This time last season the Wharfe was showing it’s bones and needed water. This morning it was one metre on the gauge, about three times the perfect level, but clearing nicely after yet another spate. There was no chance in the main flow so I tried a team of spiders, flicked upstream in the edge of the current...nothing doing. I guessed that things might improve in a couple of hours so I wandered downstream to a fast rapid and tried pulling a streamer through the adjacent slack. It’s not a usual tactic for me, but it kept me amused for a bit and there was a diversion when a couple of kayakers came through. To be fair, they waited upstream until I saw them and waved them down and they shot through the white water, another wave of thanks and off downstream, no harm done. That’s the first time I’ve seen canoes on our club water, access is difficult both up and down stream so this pair must have been particularly determined. Anyway, had lunch and moved upstream, conditions improving all the time but no offers to spiders so switched to a black bead head nymph in the edge of the flow which produced a lovely wild fish of a pound and a half. Twenty minutes later and after a couple of twitches, another nice fish to the net on the same fly. I made my way downstream and the late afternoon was beautiful, a pleasure to be there; I saw two kingfishers chasing each other at top speed up and down and I wonder are they territorial even out of breeding season? Fluked one more wild fish about 8oz while not paying attention before calling it a day. Happy with that.

    After a few weeks of not been able to fish due to very high waters and after the rain though the week i thought this weekend was a no go as well but the river lowther came to the rescue dropping in nicely still a little higher than i would have liked but but it was running pretty clear and a nice flow through it i started with nymphs and with in a few casts i had my first fish the size of my little finger with a size 16 ptn hanging out of its mouth . a few more casts and a slightly bigger fish this time 6inches this carried on for a few hours 6 fish in total brought to hand . I then switched to dry fly and had another 2 but still nothing bigger than 6--7 inches . But at the end of the day im pretty happy as this is a river that ive never caught a fish on before had fish on but they've always been the long release (

    Had an away day as the local rivers need a touch of colour, fished a stretch I hadnít been on for a couple of years, the first two decent bits of water had dog walkers throwing balls into the river for the dogs to fetch not far up from them I had my first few fish, a mix of grayling and trout to red tags and pntís after that it was mostly trout for a good while but later in the day the grayling started to show again, was having trouble seeing the indicator in some areas so put a bit of bright floss at the top where it connects to the FL, much better after that, not sure of numbers but plenty of fish, about thirds trout to grayling, Iíll put some pics up when Iím on the PC.
