Our regular Day Visitor Mike Smith, caught a 9lb salmon, and 2 Sea trout on Saturday 25th.
The Russel party visiting the Orchard Cottage had the best week of the year so far! They arrived on Sunday 19th July to find the river in terrible flood. I thought they looked a little despondent., and I tried to cheer them up , by reassuring them “the river will come down quickly!” Thankfully, the river levels gradually improved with the water being brown, but with levels at 1′ 8″ on 23rd July Kevin Russel caught 2 salmon weighing 9lbs and 8lbs. Sam Patinson caught 4 seatrout weighting 2 lbs , 2lbs, 6 lbs , and 5lbs all in the Old Egypt Pool
Week beginning 27th July Mr Ross , and his son are fishing, and so far they have caught one each! On Monday 27th Mr Ross caught a 9 lb salmon in the cauld pool with a Black and white pot bellied pig fly and his son a 4.5 lb sea trout with a spinner. We are hoping for more! On Thursday they each had good catches again- Mr Ross – an 11lb salmon and his son 1 x seatrout 4 1/2 lb and a salmon weighing 5lbs. All caught with a sliver with red dots mepp spinner.
