    When you're not lucky enough to live by the river and your fishing days are few and far between, my advice is always go fishing ever if it appears hopeless.
    As soon as there is one fish in the beat, there's a chance to catch it.
    My best trout fishing day ever was fifteen years ago in August at midday under the shiniest sun with no insect on top of the water and a temperature of between 35-40C. And I remember the first salmon I caught was early May, 3C, under heavy hail and fast blowing wind.
    Further, even you don't catch anything, and whatever the weather, you'll be better outside than at the office or in the hut

    Agree with that ! Very true. More to fishing than catching anyway.

    Imagine a pristine glowing spring fish taken well against the odds.You can't buy fish like that, it's entirely in your grasp to make it happen too!

    Then imagine having to put it back.

    I usualy look at the weather and levels, think about it for a few seconds then get in the car and drive up and fish it anyway. Time spent on the bank beats time working and cutting the lawn etc, even if it is just standing abiut talking about past fish and comparing fly and lure boxes.

    I don't see what all the fuss is about. There might be a bit of snow on Friday but the river temperature should be ok. The air temperature will not be cold enough for the river to form grue. The wind will be cold and from the east so basically upstream which is not the best but only moderate in strength. I have caught many salmon over the years in far worse conditions. I would still be full of anticipation if it was me fishing the next three days.
