Had a surprising amount of emails and Facebook messages asking how I got on this past week even as far as Scotland which is a surprise. In conclusion. Anyone who thinks they can just turn up on this river and expect a red letter day is in for a bit of a shock. Firstly picked the wrong week the elements where against me. Tired and cold waiting for delayed and cancelled trains meant little actual fishing time.
