The river's dropping fast and should be clear enough to fish tomorrow so I'll try and get out after work tomorrow evening.
Wintry conditions on the Dee.
Coloured water: chances virtually nil...but you never know!

This evening I became acquainted with my Hardy Bougle. I've wanted one of these for a long time and boy does it make a noise. I got it off a really nice chap called Timmy from Coleraine. Hopefully I'll get to wet a line with Timmy up on the Finn in the not too distant future. In the meantime, the Bougle will get it's first outing on the Dee tomorrow evening. I kitted it out with 100m of backing and Rio's .30 Powerflex Shooting Line. Because I'm left handed, the first task was to convert it from left to right hand wind. Luckily this is a simple task and now she's ready to roll.
