Good Condition


I was out on the upper water above Whitfield Hatches on Saturday. Quite breezy and with sun threatening to break through but never quite managing it. The fish didn’t seem to mind, and although there wasn’t really much hatching off the water the odd fish were taking stuff blown off the banks. The deeper pools gave up some decent trout and grayling to an ant pattern. Most came freely to speculative casts but I lost the best fish of the day, having seen it rising in steady fashion on the bends above the railway bridge.

Pics are a nice grayling and a good 15 inch stock brownie – it’s good to see them remaining in such good condition well into the season.

Kind regards
