More Wind & High Water!

This month has been another washout I'm afraid, with two storms closely tracking each other through January and into February causing more flooding and wind damage. The rivers in Cumbria and surrounding areas have remained high with periods of very strong winds accompanying the heavy rain, making it very difficult to get people out on the river for either Grayling or Salmon fishing.

Cancellations have continued to be the order of the month, although there were a couple of windows available to us, but just for casting sessions only, not fishing, at least until the gale force winds hit us again putting that on hold too.

See you at the Show!
On a brighter not though, it won't be long until the BFFI (British Fly Fair International) event at the Staffordshire Show Ground on the 13th and 14th February, where I hope to see many of you there for a catch up. There's a full itinerary of casting demonstrations throughout the weekend, provided by members of AAPGAI (the Association of Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructors). So if you intend to be there, don't forget to come along to the AAPGAI stall, or demonstration area, for a chat, it would be great to see you there.

This bad weather can't last for ever!
