We have plenty fish in the beat, but they have been difficult to catch. We landed 7 in the week ending 2 September and lost several more. John Lyndall had three, including one of 20lb. Eric Mitchell also had a couple.
We have been fishing a variety of tactics; I have found a short heavy tube fished off a tapered leader to be effective and others have been using small flies fished on the floating line and a combination of tips. I am looking forward to a change in conditions to bring these fish back on the take.
