It’s Dry and driving us to drink.
The rains are late, with October being one of the driest months we have had in a decade, but those fly fishers with faith in the weather gods are still tying for a solid Summer season. Water levels have dropped on our still waters, forcing us to rest many of them until the heavens open up.
Stagstones produced some good fish with the biggest being a 55cm this Spring.

As usual we’ve heard many stories about big fish getting the better of anglers and for the perseverant angler a fish is only a cast away.
The Rivers still need a good flush with a consequence that the Brown Trout are holed up in the deeper pools, waiting for an increased flow rate to move.
The Lower section of the Mooi is still holding good water though, as Jeremy and Gareth enjoyed an unbelievable session recently, releasing around 20 good sized Browns above the Fish Barrier.

Summer really means that it’s Bass and Yellow fish season, with the Small Mouth providing real sport and many Large Mouth providing continual action.

Rhuan Human went hunting Scalies with good results...his full report is available on www.fishtube.tv
“with a bit of stealth and patience good fish can be caught in gin clear conditions.”

With the festive season nearly upon us and rain hopefully eminent, our waters are really going to get busy, please make sure to book in advance and pop round to the WildFly Store to see our Christmas Specials for December.
If you have any catch reports please submit them as soon as possible and your pics would also greatly be appreciated.
