    Cheers 35, Was on the new stretch for the first time with my mate, no Salmon, although my mate got a lovely bush brownie 1lb. Seen a couple of fish, water was still slightly coloured and dropping. Sat a town stretch for a while watching resident and fresh fish showing. Couple of fish caught on the town and leap stretches today.

    Its lovely water.

    I think a guy called Fred lives in the pink house. I fished the Dundarve stretch a few years ago a couple of times and bought the permits off him.

    Some nice pools and runs, but a lot of dead water too, particularly at the golf course.

    It has some great trout in it, that are largely left alone. The leap stretch is lovely fly water, but the fish are handled in the traps before they get through to that bit.

    I've heard its nearly booked up for next year, not sure if thats true or not.

    Congratulations Big Angus, you've pictured the River Bush Monster, (4th photo) just above the weir in the 'Colonels Pool'. Similar to 'Nessie' Has'nt been seen for years. Well done!!

    Does anyone know why theres traps on the river? Why do fish have to be hand lifted onto the river?

    Nice looking river, not so sure about the pink house

    Don't know what happened to the pics, they were meant to be running verticaly. Maybe some of the photo shop experts could rearrange them for us. (Me)
