After a very windy day yesterday that made Tarn fishing near impossible it's a bit calmer this morning, but an hour spent up at the lodge first thing saw very few rises so I guess that our rainbows are still keeping well down and bottom feeding. The river is not worth a look now as a few dry days have reduced levels well below ideal salmon fishing conditions so its not worth burning the fuel to come up here unless you want some peace and quiet.
Those of you who course fish will wish to know that KVH has been found away south. This is a virulent carp disease that is new to the UK. The EA are asking all anglers to ensure that they disinfect and dry all tackle when moving between catchments and especially if you have visited southern waters recently.
