With low water and very bright skies fishing early and late is likely to be most productive although if fish are in the pools there's always a chance with some salmon taken in very bright conditions recently. Cloudy days have certainly fished better and any lift of water has seen more rods out and more fish caught. Seat trout and some grilse have started to make an appearance in returns with lots of sea trout lost.
Smallish flies fished on floating lines with light tips have been the way to go recently but as always be prepared to ring the changes if your first line of attack is unsuccessful!
Tight lines,
