River Taw – Opening day

Well the new season dawned cold and damp with the river at 0.5m on the gauge. Not really enough to encourage fish to run and as the air temp was 6 degs and the water 5, connecting with any of the few fish already in was always going to be a tall order.

Rods were out on most beats below the junction, but as yet there have been no fish reported.

Woolhanger Farm beats have suffered a little bit of damage during the floods of 2012 but others further down seem to have escaped. There is an awful lot of detritus high on most banks – a scary reminder of how high the water came up.

Tight lines for 2013.
