(Last Updated: Monday 04 July)
Had 4 days fishing on the beat last week, bit of a mixed bag. river was a really good height on arrival even though it was carrying a bit of colour it looked spot on. Fishing the Riding Stone some nice brownies and a sea trout of about 2lb to the double handed rod, both fish took a red Zelda fly. Next day we had a large lift which really put paid to the double handed rod so it was out with the spinning gear a blue and silver rapala was the choice, 3lb sea trout at Policemans Pool followed by a 5lb grilse up on the Island Pool, shame this was to be the last fish despite trying hard.
Quite a few fish were seen after the water started to drop back which is a good sign, I'm sure that the rods out this week will have some luck.
Hopefully better luck for me when I'm back up there at the end of the month.
