Unfortunately I was unable to fish the Dee this week due to a back problem. I did however take my 4wt sage switch rod to Elinor fishery to practice my Spey casting and see how the back held up.
My mates still went to the Dee, no fish, no kelts, no pulls and seals in the river to Banchory.
For the past 8 winters I've been faced with ever worsening conditions. Not enough snow has been a continuing theme and if it did snow it did so with the temps at or above 32 degrees. Our winters have been warm and dry from here at home all the way to the cabin at the lake some 115 miles away in...
About 4000' elevation gain over 4.5 miles from the trailhead to 9500' just to catch little fish then back down. Not terrible, but the fella I dragged with me might disagree. Haha.
Started down at that big lake.
Up and up and up.
At the lake.
I like fishes because...
Took advantage of a great weather day in the Lakes to complete a wonderful Lake District circuit. Bowfell via Crinkle Craggs, on to Scafell Pike and back (missing out Bowfell and Crinkle Craggs). Stunning scenery on a blue sky day, some pics below.
I have some exciting news! Next week we will be interviewing presenter and biologist Jeremy Wade, star of River Monsters, for an article on www.fishandfly.com. This is your chance to ask him your questions. The interview is to promote his new series, Jeremy Wade's Dark Waters...
I am staying at the Coniston Hotel, near Skipton, early June.
Has anyone here fished the lake or the river attached to the hotel ??
Boat or bank best for the lake ?
Best flies for lake ? river ?
First carp in this year! Yeah! So, I'm fished at the white bread and red worms. I haven't different lures, but second rood was throw at pop up boilies, also the result was nothing. I think, the water is cold and fish need live bait's.
