Looking Good and Good Hatches!

Called in on the river improvements on the Lower Water this evening and found John Aplin driving a dumper truck with a huge grin on his face. The works are going extremely well and hopefully fingers crossed they will be completed by the weekend.

The diggers have contoured long lengths of the Lower Water and 200 tons of gravel have created three lovely looking riffles.

I then drove to the Upper Water to meet a good friend who was fishing the day on a day ticket. He had an even bigger smile than John! Pale wateries had been hatching all day and he started at 10:30 with a 14 inch fish and ended with a 2 1/2lb fish – There are only 4 days left so make the most of this back end fishing and pay a visit to the Lower Water – you will be astonished!
