Up and down, up and down and so it goes. The access on the river is limited. If you know a farmer who gives you access head for the high banks.

Summer is hopper time and they are jumping in and along the banks.   Guess whats waiting below - JAWS - well few and far  between these days, but you never know you still might hook a monster.    

Caddis still drive the fishing morning, noon and evening.   On some nights the evening rise will drive you to drink.   Are we on the King again?   No!  Stay focussed.   Numbers of mayfly species hatching and caddis mating in millions, its a sight to see.  30 fish rising in a pool which 20 years ago would have had 80 rising fish.  Don't be greedy, you can't catch 30 fish in an evening - it gets dark too soon.
  • Best Practice Tip:  Check the mating spinners in the air and egg laying on the surface.
