The river was dropping and clearing after the band of rain that passed through our area on Thursday night/Friday morning and it was just fishable. Once again, there was a distinct lack of Olives - I saw three, so it was on with the nymph again.
My first blank of 2010 was just avoided when this 8 1/4" (21cm) fish saved the day.
I was on Ullswater today, guiding for Peter and John. They were first timers on the lake and unfortunately the weather did not do them any favours - with a bitterly cold and at times very strong westerly, making fishing difficult and pretty uncomfortable at times.
Sport was slow but they both did well considering the poor conditions and managed to save their blanks with a fish each.
