While the very warm and sunny weather was great for gardening or relaxing on the beach, anglers had to fish that little bit deeper and slower during the day, while in the evening it was either CDCs, dries or emergers.   Getting the right depth was certainly more important than fly selection during the day because a variety of lures, nymphs and wets all caught fish.   However, colour was vital component during the evening rises and this changed from evening to evening as different insects emerged and flies hatched.    A bit of thought was therefore needed, making for some excellent fishing.   Examples of baskets included P Adams who weighed in a good 5lbs 2 ozs bow and released another at 7lbs 8ozs, while visitor S Bryan released a bow circa 8lbs among his total of 10.   Another visitor, E Barrow, also released 10, best at 6 lbs..   The evening was always going to be the best time for fishing and while it was little frustrating for some anglers whose fly was repeatedly ignored by rising trout, others were more successful including L Wood who released a dozen, D Beverely and I Sutherland who, in he space of 2 hours, tempted 14 and 17 respectively, best at 6lbs.
