Not so breezy as yesterday but the wind is still on the cool side suppressing any hatches. The river is now a few inches above summer level and clearing from the peat tint, the tides are now dropping off this week and hopefully a little drier than of late.

1There was the odd flurry of surface activity when the wind momentarily dropped and the brown trout were responding to both wet and dry flies. I was out with Bert from Germany today, no salmon for us but the trout fishing was okay despite the conditions.

2Just ahead of the tide there were one or two sea trout that had came into the pool. As the month wears on and the air (eventually) warms with the water level dropping, fishing in the evening and into dark will be very productive for both specimen brown and sea trout.

3This one took a dry (damp) fly (Klinkhamer), a few nice brown trout to go with it and also a good sea trout lost made the day an absolute pleasure
