Wind blown terrestrials

Just back from a very enjoyable evenings fishing and although the river is extremely low the trout & grayling are still feeding well. It was a very overcast evening with the threat of rain all night, but fortunately for me, but unfortunately for the river it never quite started. With the summer growth of the …

Blowing a gale

I had the chance of a few days fishing recently but the weather was not exactly ideal. On Thursday it was blowing a gale and threatening rain, but I ventured out on to the lower water anyway. I never saw a rise, but thought I would tempt something in a likely spot with a nymph, …

Nice blokes

I met John and Elliott at around lunch time (nice blokes) they guided me to the lower water beat. John thought I’d be in for a good day. Sadly, this trip brought me my first blank in years. I thought I knew what I was doing until I came to Dorchester! I had four last …
