An auspicious start

Despite the chilling winds, the season got off to a great start with plenty of Returns showing the (new) limit, and more Returns to come (I hope). A few spots were busy at certain times but empty a few hours later, so the limit regime is working well. Thanks to Stuart for stocking some excellent fish (I enjoyed a lovely 3lb Rainbow this evening). Too cold for dries, but they were taking various nymphs such as Hare's Ear, PTN, Duracell and Mayfly.

Do email your tips for the blog (see 1st post, below). Thanks
