December Abandoned

A Flooded Carlisle Street
In my last post I remained optimistic to hopefully fit in a bit of Grayling fishing for one or two people before Christmas, however as you will all know by now, circumstances took a real turn for the worst here in Cumbria with persistent rain and strong winds, coupled with the already very wet ground conditions from the previous rainfall we had, which brought some devastating flooding to the area.

Although the bulk of the water is now out of peoples homes, the conditions are still volatile with more rain forecast for this week, which must be quite worrying for those already flooded out of their homes and our thoughts are certainly with them at this time.

Rest assured though, things will eventually return to normal and after the festive season we will definitely get out on the Eden to target a few Grayling in the early part of the year, and with the salmon fishing also fast approaching, (season opens here on the Eden on January 15th) we will soon be back in the swing of things as the Spring season has been showing improvement over the past few years.

Hope to See you all Next Season
Anyway whilst we are waiting for all this action to take place, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the very best in health and happiness for the 2016 season. See you soon!
