The pictures above and below show a length that is a delightful stretch to fish in the spring , the tail of the rapids is a lovely long glide that always holds a few trout. This is a lovely stretch to fish on very early on a summers morning .
In the spring the banks above are thick with wild Garlic when the air is still the valley is full of the smell . It can be almost overpowering . This little valley is right on the edge of town but has badgers ,foxes and loads of deer.
One of us seemed to be enjoying the river. What is about water and labradors that makes them inseperable.
The picture above is the largest weir on the river its proobably about a 15 to 20 ft drop. Today it was really bowling through. In the summer in can be the merest trickle. This weir pool holds good trout and even a few perch. For a last pic heres Ruby chewing on, for her a very small stick.
Sorry for such a down beat post. I really dislike the winter its to dark to cold and I cant fish. So I am going to go now and try to think of something cheerful to post next time.
