    I've been spotting posts where remarks about low water are showing up. Just saw another on Gary's post to TTOM thread and thought better to post here than hijack the fly thread. Remembering the past few seasons that your rivers suffered under low flow conditions I can only hope you see a turn...

    I managed a wee walk this morning and couldn`t believe how low this stretch of the Clyde is? because part of the banking was washed away the main flow of this section has changed "first photo" and in the "second photo" looks like this has been an old river crossing? I`ve walked this section for...

    Hi, hoping someone can answer a question for me. I'm curious about low water hooks, when we are using such a variety of density of polyleaders does having a slightly thinner gauge hook really impact the depth at which the fly is fished?

    I have 2 rods on Thoresby tomorrow which I am not going to use. The water's low at the moment - MSL +3" - but if anyone would like a free day's fishing please respond to this thread ASP. Although the water is low there are fish in the pools.

    Don't get out on the river so much these days but was out on a few evenings last week. The water was fairly low but in previous years that has not really mattered too much for the evening rise. In fact, some of the best evening rises I have encountered have been in low water. Last week, the...

    Hi, I bought this fly from somewhere a few year back and have had really good success on it in low water. Do you know if it has a name, wish I could remember where I got it! Thanks

    Does such a thing exist? Manufacturers make such a big deal about their ultra low stretch 6% heads and running lines these days, but then most of us stick a 10 foot elastic band on the end in the form of a polyleader :confused: I understand why a bit of stretch can be a good thing, but...

    There is no doubt this Spring has been difficult to say the least with some low catches throughout the Various river beats. In particular these last two Springs that have shown a progressive down turn on catches. But while we factor in lack of snow, low river levels and in some cases lack of...

    I've known for some years now that the level of my river was dropping. Even before the devastating flood in the summer of 2017, the river seemed to be getting lower every summer. Last year, the year after the flood, the river had to be learnt from scratch again for fishing. Every pool had...

    Lost nice fresh fish after 5 minutes of playing it. Was a bad "head shaker" from start to finish which I never like :(. Just above Turriff at Muiresk. Didn't see anything else, water quite low (+2" on the gauge and exceptionally clear). On the plus side got to watch a lovely osprey work a pool...

    Looking for a S/H Sage switch, prefer a Method or Sage X #7weight to be used as a back up for low water hitching.

    Guys, Has anyone any experience of the NT8 12ft 9in 8/9 weight? I have some money burning a hole in my pocket and what with the rivers being quite low, I am thinking about getting a lightweight shooting head rod and these look like they fit the bill.

    I’m going out with my pal tomorrow on the south esk. It’s a spate river and desperately needs water. We fished same beat last week with a similar water height and after fishing thru a pool in between real low rough water came to the conclusion that there were no salmon in it as I never touched...
  19. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    No dressing as this one is an old favourite with lots of tying instruction out there! Possibly the last ones for my set of low water/dropper flies and so nice to finish with an old traditional pattern.

    any recommendations or thoughts on where on the Tay to head for some early season fishing? I've heard everything advice wise from near the Loch itself at the top end to near the mouth of at the bottom end ... and everything in between, depending who you ask. Catch numbers of the majority seem...
