Yes, it was a lovely fly water today and no spinning under 2ft. No other Anglers on the beat. Think the gale force winds put the rest off 😉
Great result and the best way to end season.
well done 👍

Thanks for the kind words chaps. I was pretty surprised and pleased with that one 😉

Hold the phones folks. Very heavy rain forecast over all of Cumbria tonight. 10 inches at least. I hope nobody gets hurt or flooded out of their houses. if the Lune gets a slug and then drops off the last 2 days Saturday and Sunday could get a little bit funky :)

Well, well well there appears to be no damage to life or property from yesterday's extremely heavy rain in Cumbria. This is of course a great relief. The river appears to be in reasonable order if not a little bit over full of blown in leaves. Gotta be worth a final chuck of the dice this weekend. Saturday I am going to Bournemouth to collect the new bike I have just bought myself. Sunday however is looking all a bit interesting. To any and all of you going out for a little paddle I wish you the very best of luck ;)

I'm watching the gauge and the weather, there maybe a final chance at Drybeck on Sunday, the clocks change this weekend so it would have to be an early start.

I went to the Lune yesterday, I was up early and the weather in Cheshire was dire, torrential rain and the wind was blowing. River levels dropping on the lune (0.89m) at Killington and upstream. It was one last throw of the dice or go to Lamaload, the weather is usually worse up above Macclesfield and I haven't had a chance of a day on the Lune this year. Off I went, 40 minutes later on the M6 and the rain has stopped, blue sky in the distance which gave me some hope. The weather was good at Drybeck, levels were good but the leaves were like a thick soup. After driving an hour and forty minutes I thought I'd just stay. The river started to rise again which brought even more leaves but then started to drop and there was a brief period of fishing without removing a leaf from the fly at every cast. I walked back to the car for some food and it started raining. I went back to make my claim on the record amount of leaves caught in one fishing session, ended up soaked and watching an Egret who was looking a bit lost. Should I have stayed at home - probably :ROFLMAO:

Unlucky Andy. Drybeck is a lovely part of the valley. Another time you’d have been rewarded for your perseverance 😉
