Fishing Report – 14 June 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers Fishing Report – 14th June 2017 Persistent low water has been the feature since the start of the season. Even when we did have rain there was barely enough to register on the gauge. I’m not sure if this is the reason why the fish have been so skittish but my […]

Fishing Report – 16th May 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers Fishing Report – 16 May 2017 After a meeting with Don and the Keepers at the Locked Bridge I popped down to the Roadside pool to see if there were any Olives on the wing. The cool NW wind was still making things hard work but there were one or two fish […]

Fishing Report – 16th April 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers Fishing Report – 16 April 2017 Grandfatherly duties having prevented my attendance on Opening Day, I had fully intended to wet a line the following day. However, events once again conspired to frustrate me and I ended up spending most of the afternoon dealing with three poachers who had been spotted […]

Fishing Report – 15 September 2016

At the end of August the rain fell relentlessly and soon the river was high and dirty. Despite the terrible conditions, Carl Brumby enjoyed a wonderful day fishing every beat on his birthday, of which more will be told in the end of season Newsletter. This is proof of my contention that the Wye is […]

Fishing Report – 16 August 2016

Despite its peaceful reputation, fly fishing can be a dangerous pastime. In my fishing career I’ve fallen in many times, had my boat sink under me, been stung, chased by bears and had undercut banks collapse on me. All these things and more can be viewed as occupational hazards, to be taken in one’s stride. […]

Fishing Report – 30th June 2016

My guests had chosen the day weeks beforehand – the mid-summer solstice. Surely the weather would relent and for once we would have a fine day? Not a chance. The rain was hammering down as I picked them up from their hotel. The EA River Level Gauge for Buxton showed little movement but I was […]

Fishing Report – 15th June 2016

My attention has been concentrated on the Derwent this last couple of weeks so I haven’t any personal experiences to recount from the Wye. This is not because I’ve had no wish to be on the Wye, far from it. It’s just that my domestic circumstances have been limiting my fishing opportunities. Chris tells me that the Mayfly have been in evidence […]

Fishing Report -15th May 2016

When at last the better weather arrived, I thought I would attempt my first evening session.  And there’s only one spot I head for when time is limited – Signpost’s. As ever, St Anne’s Church clock was striking 7.00 as I tackled up on the bridge above the Anglers’ Rest. I had chosen my 10 […]
