How time flies! The trout fishing season is already over and the salmon season has just twelve day’s left on the Eden. The autumn salmon run due to the very dry conditions has turned out to be a damp squib, it would seem that this has also been the case most everywhere else in the country. The next flood the river gets will be a very dirty one, it will be the second cleaner flood that will bring the fish, will that happen in twelve day’s, I would not think so?
We have already weeks ago, turned our attentions to the other species on the Eden, a period that should have been the peak of the run and had some great sport.
On the middle river with my very good friend David and Australian friend Dean Wednesday. There were some good hatches of sedge and various mayflies which got the fish moving.
Followed by a nice grayling- Utube
Had a lovely time on the river with Bill yesterday. All was going well and really enjoying the good weather and tranquility when a mass of mallard, goosander, swan, cormorant and many other water fowl came flying past us at a great rate of knots. What was disturbing all the wildlife that we had been enjoying all morning?
….we have to put up now with people standing up paddling and poling their way down river without so much as a by your leave, what next, jet skis trolling baits!? Rant over!
