Willow Matress

We had a grand day today, starting on the willow mattress at Whitfield hatches, lots of posts driven in to the bed of the river and lots of willow woven into the front of the structure before back filling, with more willow, to the bank later in the week.

As we constructed the main line of willow weaving you could see a change in flow, with the Trout already taking up new their new lies, yet again a step forward in habitat improvement, we were fortunate to have the company of Mayfly, huge Sedges, Olives and rising fish, and not an angler in sight.
Working with Willow, nothing like satisfaction…
