At long last the weather stayed dry for 3 consecutive days, time for the river to settle a little.
It was still a little high for my liking but it was sure good to get out for a walk and cast.
Nymphs were my choice to begin with and fishing them directly across and slightly up river brought results. 5 Grayling the best at 2 lbs the others 10 onz to the pound mark all on the same nymph. It does not have a name for it was just conjured up by myself whilst having a fiddle at the tying vice.
A few, well 3 actually, Iron Blue`s were spotted around dinner time and the weather being damp and dank led me to expect a little hatch any moment, but it did not materialise. My fishing companion fished the high stick method and netted 3, but I must admit I avoid this style if I can help it. (Just not me) But a very effective method in the right hands, no doubt.
Happy New Year to all my followers

I`m wishing we could have some settled weather back, if just for a few days.
We have had 2 weeks now of heavy rain, the river is constantly high and I am pulling my hair out to get out fishing the Dee. The photo above just shows what it was like just a few weeks ago.
May I wish all my clients and Blog followers a Merry Xmas and a Happy and Prosperous 2019. Just a reminder that I am still guiding days out for Grayling fishing and Casting instruction throughout the Winter months.
So if you would like to smooth out casting hitches ready for the new season or a guided day on the marvellous Welsh Dee please do contact me.
Also for those who are searching for that Xmas gift that's just a bit special, treat that special person to a day`s guided fishing in the Snowdonia lakes amongst some stunning scenery that He/She will remember for life.
All the very best
