Thumbs up Over 75? Half price

Jan and I think keeping people fishing is just as important as starting people fishing.

It's a privilege to take senior anglers around our four rivers in the landrover and show them the flat banks, numerous seats and resting fishing huts in the hope that they can extend their hobby past the stage they thought of giving up. Only one of our rivers allows wading, the other three being from the bank only and the meadows around Bakewell can be fished from a wheelchair. I like having senior members involved in the social element of our club because they often attend our gatherings and club meetings throughout the year. Our oldest member is 92. Everyone over 75 gets straight in and only pays half price annual membership with all the usual member benefits - £325

I was out on the river yesterday, delightful and always good to have a natter with other members.
All in all, a chilly swirling wind suppressed the hatch which was at best sporadic. You got the sense that, if the sun would come out and the wind drop for several hours, then the place would burst forth..
Notable sightings:-
- a mayfly (I kid you not)
- sand martins
- catching a fish on my knees hid behind a tree whilst a man in a signal red fleece was telling me about a carp he caught 5 years ago on a piece of bacon rind (or some such nonsense!)
As always, a real pleasure,
JJ

Hi all,
I am fishing the Peacock Hotel beats this Saturday. I fished the Wye beats once before, about 5 years ago. Any update on conditions?
Thanks,
Billy

If that hardy is a Velcro type of reel bag it may be mine. I "misplaced" mine but cant remember which river.

Fished the previous two days from around 10am until 4pm each day and itís been tough going! Picked a few Grayling off on dries but nymphs didnít produce, might wait now until the river clears a bit before going again. Enjoyable to be out nonetheless.
