Feel of Spring

There was a real feel of spring as this months working party started it’s work on the Upper Water by the Withy Bed.

First we headed up to see the effect the small islands that were installed last year. They had worked brilliantly over the winter months, creating some wonderful gravel bars and features that the trout will love.

We then worked our way downstream, clearing any over hanging branches ready to flick a fly beneath them. The spring like sun was very welcome and we also spotted a good few hatching olives and even rising fish!

Rob also showed us his wonderful water colour paintings of trout and what stunning paintings they are too – He said he intends to do some grayling paintings and hopefully he will bring them along to the AGM. for all to see.
