So it's raining... again

Is this the wettest year on record for the UK? If no,t it must be close. The recent heavy rain has really thrown plans into turmoil and I am cancelling trips to avoid the flood waters. As I write, the rain is hammering upon the window and the thought of rising flood water is always a concern.

The picture shows the usually clear, tiny stream that forms the Congresbury Yeo earlier this afternoon before the rain started to fall properly.

If you are out and about, take care and stay safe.

Grayling Days

Time seems to have more lmited than ever over the past few weeks, hence my lack of blogging. My apologies! I am in the process of finalising some 'Grayling Day' dates both for my local Chew Fly Fishers Club and hopefully some general public days as well. Please keep your eyes on the blog, Twitter and Facebook for more details. I will update them soon.

In the meantime, the rivers are fishing well and the grayling are starting to shoal up prompted by the cold weather. I have a busy diary with plenty of exciting fishing booked up and I will report back soon.

In the meantime, please remember, you can follow me and the River Fly Box on Twitter and on Facebook!

If you're out fishing, enjoy!
