Rain Still Persistant

Not much changed I'm afraid as the rain has continued to relentlessly batter us and lift the rivers to unfishable levels for the avid fly fisher, the main problems being unsettled and coloured water conditions, "better known as 2012".

High water & wet weather
I did manage one session with Borderlines with a group of youngsters on the 8th December, albeit with swim feeders, to enable them to catch some fish, as water conditions were high yet again, (as you can see in the picture) and fishing the fly would have made it almost impossible for them to have had any chance of success whatsoever. I also managed to fit in a tuition session on tactics and techniques for Grayling, but apart from that the rest of the days had to be cancelled due to hopeless conditions.

Never mind, it's Christmas day tomorrow, and hopefully many of you will have some new gear to try out in 2013, which will hopefully provide us with a much better season. So whilst we are waiting, please allow me take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, with many successful fishing trips still to come.

"Tight Lines" for 2013. Clive.
