We’ve just had a thunder shower that deposited about 2 inches of rain in 20 minutes so the gradual fall in the river level has been arrested and it may rise in the next hour.  It’s really muggy and a delight for biting midges so any time spent by the river is going to be in the company of these wee beasties.

I wrote yesterday about Rob’s megga session on the river and thought that you might like to see one of the near forty fish that he caught:

This is a cracking river brownie looking fat and sleek with good markings.  Evidence, I think that the river is in not bad nick.  This fish is about breeding size, but it’s not clear whether it’s a cock or hen fish (I struggle to tell them apart outside the breeding season). If most of the catch were like this then I have high hopes for this year’s breeding season.
