I simply threw a box of dry flies in my wader pocket and headed out after tea last night. I knew the river was low and clear & was hoping that I might at least see a rising fish or two.
Sitting at the top of the beat scanning for almost 30 minutes saw no fish moving at all, no fly life nothing moving at all! heading down the beat was much the same I would walk 200m or so then stop and scan where I had come from and where I was heading but all with the same results...No movement at all.
My mind started to wander and I was amazed at the amount of debris the last big water had brought downstream & actually how high it had accumulated.
The picture does this no justice but the height of the wooden crate at the top of the pile is about 13ft high in the air.
