Prospects for coming week

(Last updated: Monday 18th September)

Conditions look favourable again this week. Water levels are good and with only a little rain in the forecast, we should have a stable river height, which will certainly help. Water temperatures are dropping to just under 50F down to 48F (8-10C), which also bodes well.

Successful flies have been many and varied. The common theme has been to fish them deep. We have had everything from Silver Stoats and Ally's, to big Franc N Snaeldas. It varies from beat to beat.

As ever, listen to your ghillie!
