With 8 fish it has been another exceptionally difficult week of fishing. The weather watches amongst you will have seen the forecast of rain amount to a rise of less than an inch, the ground is so dry that most rain just sinks in and does not reach the river. The forecast for the coming week isn't promising much rain, but the high tides might bring a few fish into the lower beats.
The loch is holding enough water so that we maintain a flow in the river and coupled with colder days is good for the health of the river, but we do desperately need a good couple of days of rain.
On a different note there is now a map of the river produced by Nigel Holdsworth ( see Picture) These are available (unframed) via the Ulbster Arms Hotel for £25.00 inc P & P. If you contact the hotel on 01847 831641 they will deal - Make a good present for Christmas!
Tight lines to you all.
