Half Day Heaven…15th/16th July

July 18, 2019

As Monday and Tuesday mornings were assigned to lessons, I had 2 more ‘free’ afternoons. Monday pm was spent on a very low river Goyt. The bicycle gauge was very high out of the water this time out. This made it tough to move around undetected and approach the fishiest spots without spooking everything. 0.16

Quite a tricky afternoon all told as having to fish at greater distance meant more fly line out and therefore more tangles.

Tangles aplenty!
…but not many fish
The Bike Gauge read low.
Very welcome given the conditions

A trip to Chirk on Tuesday meant the opportunity to fish the Ceiriog. This tributary of the river Dee is also very low at the moment but the fish have to go somewhere! Concentrating on areas with depth and flow paid dividends AND, I was able to explore bits of the river I’ve not been able to access before.

Anglers love bridges almost as much as fish.
