A June day with John Wastle, looking for mayfly feeders. The early cloud quickly burned away to give us a scorcher! Then a day beginning of August. Still a few mayfly about and fish looking for them. However, most of the fish were lying deep in Gateside, due to the previous week’s heatwave.

A blustery, cool day, with Martin Wigglesworth. Very little mayfly to be seen.
A day on the mayfly with Mark Hirst. Good spinner action, p.m.
A day on dries with Jimmy. Mayfly activity starting to get going. Fish quite cooperative. Wind direction less so. Top fly was the ‘Found Link’.
A day with Bob Allan. Mayfly starting to trickle off. Loads of alders, sedges and other stuff – and clouds of gnats and hawthorns.
A good autumnal day and good sport with dries.
Some mayfly action in tough conditions.
A few mayfly coming off, but the fish yet to tune in to them. Hard work with dries in bright sunshine. A few alders provided a bit of sport.
In the middle of an algal bloom, but the wind had blown it all to the east end, and the top half of the water was crystal clear.
