I can never turn down an invitation from Pete Lax to fish this beat so I was pleased to be back this month. This is my favourite trout river in the UK and the scenery is breath taking. Yet again the river did not disappoint.
I took approx twelve fish on the Dry Fly and nymph. Anybody interested in fishing this beat can contact Pete through his web site www.peterlaxflyfishing.co.uk for guiding rates etc.
Pete has all the guiding rights on this stretch of water so if you want to fish it he is the gentleman you need to contact.
Thanks for the invite Pete, when can I come again?
The rod I used on the day was a GUIDELINE Fario Classic 10ft 3 weight.
This rod is a proper fishing tool, a fish only needs to breathe on your fly and you feel it when nymph fishing but it will also cast a dry fly with ease. The line I use is a GUIDELINE presentation WFF 3W which I find is a great combination. The flies I caught all my fish on were the Grifiths gnat high vis dry fly and a brown Czech nymph.
