Fishing Report – 18 September 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers – Fishing Report 18 September 2017 I’m not sure why August has such a bad reputation as a fishing month.  My last few visits have been wonderful. The river has been in good order, if a little on the low side, and the weather settled and perfect.  Olives have hatched, caddis […]

Fishing Report – 14 August 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers – Fishing Report 14 July 2017 Once again I’m sorry to say I’ve been absent from the river, my fishing having been limited to the Big Laxa in Iceland so don’t feel too sorry for me! I have heard reports of excellent spinner and caddis fishing for those prepared to fish […]

Fishing Report – 14 July 2017

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers – Fishing Report 14 July 2017 I’m afraid my June fishing has been almost non-existent due to domestic commitments but this was more than made up for by the arrival of a 6 pounder on the 22nd – my new granddaughter India! On the 29th we were privileged to have Stuart […]

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 […]

Roadside Pool

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 – 31st May 2016

Running a fishing club might seem to be a fairly uneventful business but in fact there is never a time when you can just go fishing and have nothing to worry about. In addition to the Cressbrook Mill hydro scheme proposal we now have local residents at Litton Mill expressing concern about flood risks to property and flooding on our path at the […]

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 […]
