    Arndilly Fancy

    Thought I'd get a few of these old favourites in the box for summer approaching .... the old reliable Arndilly Fancy. Had many a fish on this pattern on a balmy evening at dusk ?.

    Dee Silver

    I returned last night from 3 days on Commonty. I think this is a wonderful beat and very well managed. Our Ghillie Ian Fraser is always attentive and willing with good advice, and the woodburner in the hut is always on for arrival in the morning and never goes out over the day. The two other...

    ...... and one from Commonty

    As our own PTG hinted on the thread "3 from Park", I was lucky to stumble infront of the path of this one last Thursday (21st Feb). Hard going, but conditions were good .... just not many running fish in the system at the moment. Friday and Saturday were fishless, but on every pool with...
