Having admittedly been a bit slack on the blogging (and fishing) front I thought it was time to get down to the river and finally wet a line after a long winter. A few conversations with rods from other beats confirmed that ether were a few Sea trout about but so far, no Salmon had been landed.
I had been hoping for a bit of rain to freshen things up a bit and the river did get a welcome flush earlier in the week. This coincided with building tides so I was quite hopeful that there would be a few fish in the river. The river had dropped back down to .72 on the gauge so was a little lower than I'd ideally like for fishing the fly and there was still a tinge of colour.
