Fine Fettle

David and I fished the lower water this morning. It was a glorious sunny day with a slightly chilly North wind. There were plenty of Grannom coming off, but as I always find with Grannom not many fish rising. We fished all morning and I had two small Trout on a CDC Emerger and David had a Trout and a reasonable Grayling on a nymph.

In the afternoon we went over to the Piddle which looked in fine fettle, but no Grannom and no Trout showing. David had one Trout on a nymph.

All in all a quiet day but it was great to be back the river looks in fantastic condition, the Swallows have arrived and there is a duck on the lower water with 12 chicks and we have the whole season ahead of us.
