In no time we began to pick off the odd fish going downstream in all kind of swims and although the venue wasn't on fire, there was enough action to keep us both happy. After a few hours the wind calmed down and after catching the beauty below on the last pool we turned back to pick up a couple on the home leg.
We finally reached the meadow where I lost another fish, maybe the same fish as earlier - the swine. We had a quick walk upstream through the next clubs water at Beresford Dale and had a nosey around and the stretch looked promising.
The wildlife appeared active today with dippers and wagtails doing their thing and we stumbled across a few Goosanders 2 females and a male trying to hide in the bank for a kip. They all quickly left the building, when the dreaded anglers stopped for a look at them. Its the 1st time I've seen them on this stretch and with Splash hunting through the night before we came, he appeared a bit twitchy. Joking aside Goosanders are pretty impressive ducks.
