Had laptop problems hence no updates, please bear with me!
Only been out 3 times since last update but each time managed 3 or 4 grayling. Even christened my new rod (Orvis western 10' #4 which I got in the sale at 50% off an absolute bargain) with a few grayling!
There are still a couple of weeks left before the season closes for March to rest the river. Have had a few out of season browns and rainbows which have been like bars of silver. I am sure this is testament to the excellent work Matthew and the other keepers do during the trout close season. Looking forward to the new season as I suppose everyone else is.
The last S&T meeting in January was good with Barry Grantham demonstrating how to make split cane rods. He had brought a few models with him and they were superb and not too expensive for split cane. Comparable on price to the top the range sage or orvis models. The meeting in March is Charles Jardine who will be cooking up some dishes.
The next grayling meeting in the Devonshire in Baslow has Stuart Croft giving a talk, always a good evening with Stuart, recommended.
hoping to get out this coming weekend, if I manage it will update blog, laptop permitting!
Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
