The Farr Side Update to 30th June 2017
Well that's the spring fishing over for another year. Low water conditions dominated the last few weeks until a 4ft flood came along. It was very dirty and disappeared just as quickly as it arrived. A few fish moved up the river last week, with 3 caught on the Tuesday, Richard Smith with a 10lbs fish out Woodside, Rodger Herbert 9 lbs Jock Shure, Jerry Alexander also Woodside
Charles Jeffrey was down on Wednesday and managed a Sea Trout out of Jock Shure in the morning.
The weather changed at the end of week and the sun came out, not the best of fishing conditions but Friday John MacPhail from the world famous Tweedside Tackle in Kelso managed to catch his first ever Salmon out the Stream 10lbs very fresh on a Cascade no 10, switch line with a 5 foot intermediate tip.
Saturday the sun came out to play and drank all the water. As I speak it is below the tank and falling every day but at least we have some rain forecast for today Wednesday the 21st let's see what happens now!
Currently we have a Kingfisher nesting in the stream, just waiting to see the young ones come out, plenty of young ducks about.
Sand martins are nesting for the first time in about 30 years, about 20 nests.
Summertime is here now so on with painting boats and cutting grass on the banks. Weed will also need to be cut in river starting in July, mostly in the dish
