Water levels are critically low on the rivers but the fish are still rising and taking in the deeper pools. Yesterday I was out with regular client John Hartigan and we had some fantastic fishing in the deeper pools. There were quite a few olives hatching and fish were even keen to rise to the dry fly!

Once again using long leaders and 7X Tippett (2lb) we were able to catch plenty of fish. John had even one fish over 1.5lbs.

We have a lot of clients from all over the world in the last few weeks of the season so fingers crossed we will get some rain in the coming days
