As expected, the Mayfly are starting to wane and the fish have been becoming super selective. A spent spinner pattern has been the best bet on the river. Interestingly, the stillwaters seem to be picking up and ants are firmly on the menu - the same is true on the rivers too - very Summer like. A shame the weather doesn't agree:

Sedge and midge fill the air as the sun goes down

This pretty fish fell for a spinner imitation

At full stretch for Mike as he nets a super fish

This weekend was the Longleat Fishing and Country Fair and it was conducted under changeable skies. It's always great to be at these events and I really hope this show will become a permanent entry in the calendar for future years.
