We had a very good festive season indeed with holiday makers descending on our coast line, fly rod in hand. The result was plenty of flies hitting the water.
We had some good weather with very few windy days and nice catches were made
Grunter, garrick and mullet were taken
Grunter and garrick coming out,
Nice grunter were taken and up-river garrick and kob came out.
As this river is now tidal one has to judge the tide just right before the grunter starts tailing, so on an incoming tide when the sandbanks are filling up is the right time. Garrick were taken and I know of one grunter that was taken.
Up river kob at night was the best time and place, plenty of juvenile garrick came out.
Grunter and Garrick were the order of the day as a few were taken over the holidays
