(Last updated: Monday 22nd May)
Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would suggest West Learmouth, Pedwell, Horncliffe and Tweedhill beats should have a good chance of some action this coming week.
The forecast looks like we are going to have some nice hot and settled weather this coming week with light winds from the south to south west. Not ideal fishing conditions but hopefully these sea liced fish keep coming into the river.
Water temperatures are starting to rise to a level where dressed flies in sizes 8 or 10 should be about right. Blacko's Dee Special, Gledswood Shrimp, Ghillie, Underghillie, Girnal Shrimp and if you fancy giving a Sunray Shadow a strip it should bring success fished off floating lines with poly leaders, while on the spinning front the 13cm Blue Rapala, Black/Gold Rapala Tobies in 12gm-20gm and with the water temperature getting up a bit now the flying c should bring some success. As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie.
