A few fish obviously pushing through the lower beats into the river as far as around Ross, but upper river is still dropping away and is now really low.

A few more fish;

First fish for Coedithyl to Alan Davies 15lbs on Willie  Gunn Snaeldda
Wyastone Leys a 15 pounder for Richard Perrett on a f/c
Caradoc  18lbs for George Stanford on fly

Superb fresh fish today for Ian  Kenworthy (yesterdays name was wrong -sorry) on the Golden Mile taken on a black f/c. The veritable bar of silver.  11lbs
