Ello l’eau Ello A Life Of Brian

Well done Mark!

The combination of hurricanes and north Atlantic deep depressions (storm Brian) brought an awful lot of rain. Our hardy parties endured frustrating times and yet some fish were caught and some good fresh fish still running. After the trip arranged by tony R Roger followed up with a lovely email to the estate. “just to say how much I really enjoyed fishing your beat, greatly boosted by being lucky enough to catch a fine 14lb salmon the first day..and thanks to Barry for guidance , casting improvements and netting the fish!”. Neil W brought his party up for some days in the beginning of the second week, I really hoped that the river would settle and with some luck success.
As it happened it WAS NOT EASY !! Day one was fishable but Day 2 Neil asked could they fish the lakes and they had a fantastic time with a variety of Browns, Blues and rainbow…no specimens but good sport. Saturday was the day and eventually one fish was kind enough to be caught by Neil’s friend John nearly 13and a half pounds. that’s it for Neil this year and his friends but thanks a lovely chap who knows his fishing.
The next party were a late addition, Mark B who had caught a lovely fish a month or so earlier on the fly came back with his friend who persisted with the fly and both caught fish ! Well done and hard earned when the conditions were not easy by any means.
John M and his pal were joined by Brett Mc all great anglers and deserved some sport but the ridiculous amounts of rain in all directions just meant the river was carrying a massive amount of residual water and new from rains that just would not stop sadly…John and Co called it a day for the season and Brett gave it a game go but the river refused to settle. We had some new clients look at the beat guided by Barry Mitchell and they were lucky to have a fine evening touring the estate and beat. Kenny B saw some fish and was enthralled by the wonderful peace and tranquillity. Looking forward to seeing you in 2018 Kenny.

Mark’s buddy with the husband !
