A great week on the fishery again this week. Plenty of brown trout caught with the fish falling to nymphs, spiders and dry flies. After talking to one of the guides he told me that his own blue winged olive pattern claimed some trout at the higher end of the fishery.

Midweek of last week I was lucky enough to be able to welcome 2 very competent fly anglers Paul and Conor. The two anglers made their way to the middle reaches of the fishery. Using dry fly and wet fly they claimed some very nice brown trout with the real star of the show being a sea trout just on 2 pound for Conor. I have heard a few stories of sea trout on the fishery over the past 3 seasons but this was the first one I managed to see a picture of. Paul had some very nice brown trout on the dry fly up to one pound.

On Tuesday night of last week I was also very lucky and managed to get on the river myself for an evening with two of my good friends. We fished dry dropper, euro nymph and late in the evening dry fly. Between us we had just on 60 trout all; returned safely to the river. Over turning some submerged rocks showed an abundance of cased caddis and various other nymphs which is great to see.

There are a few evening permits available for next week.

Nymphing master classes still being held.

Now taking bookings for fly tying classes over the winter months.
