Lower Water

John,
As you are stuck at home I thought that you might appreciate another fishing report. (Thanks Jim! John Hon.Sec)

I fished from Bockhampton to Loud’s Mill starting at 08:30 and finishing at 12:00. As nothing was moving when I arrived I decided to fish with a nymph. As a pheasant tail GH had no success I switched to an olive GH and this produced a 3/4 lb trout from above one of the riffle pools.

Eventually I did find one rising fish and as it showed no interest in the nymph I changed to a size 16 greenwell. This was an instant success bringing a trout of 1 lb. I saw two other rising fish and I landed them both, one was 1/2 lb the other 1 lb. All the fish were safely returned.

It was quite and odd day. The only fish that I saw rising were the ones that I caught. There was a very light grannom hatch between 10:30 and 12:00 and the best time was between 11:00 and 12:00.

You will be relieved to know that I saw no Mayflies.

Cheers,
Jim Chalmers (Hon.Treas)
