|The river Chew, a good 5 feet up on it usual level|
Here in Somerset we certainly haven't escaped the rain, and the rivers are belting through, high and very coloured. The smal,l pretty trout streams we are used too have been raging torrents for much of June and it seems July's going much the same way.
Some video of the river today - my quaint trout stream!
James and Linsey were joining me today to learn some fly casting and perhaps find some willing trout. Due to the rain, we were forced to find refuge on a near by stillwater.

Whilst the rain poured down steadily, we were graced with the odd reprise from a soaking ~ but my hats off to them both for there perserverance under less then ideal conditions. Well done!
Fingers crossed we have some drier weather over the coming weeks before we are washed off the rivers again. Watch this space!
