July floods

Yesterday I spent the morning wading about in my chest waders, all the paths on the lower water had at least 10 inches of water, and in places as much as three feet, this is the highest I have ever seen the river in July!

I always carry at least two life jackets on board!


When chatting to John G about the weed we decided that the river needed a little flush through, well here it is, only on a grander scale than we ever imagined……

Its the first time water has reached the fishing hut……

It will be a few days before the river is fishable again, its not any lower today, I will keep my eye on the levels and inform you likewise.
