Just back from a weeks holiday fishing the San River, Poland – fishing was hard going, but enjoyed every minute..
My fellow guest Keith Wallington is a brilliant fly tier and it was a joy to watch him tie his realistic spider pattern. He also showed me a mayfly pattern that he tinkering with and it ticked all my boxes – lands gently on the water, buoyant and remarkably robust! I will be tying a few of these for next seasons mayfly hatch… Full instructions please visit his blog Keith Wallington.
Members are advised that the Environment Agency will be conducting a survey on the 20th of September 2011, environmental conditions allowing. This survey involves between 3 and 4 fisheries staff and 1 or 2 vehicles being on site for 2 –3 hours, surveying 100 – 150m of river. The impact of the survey on angling will be minimised as far as possible and all fish will be handled with extreme care.
