Once again it’s the end of June before we know it. The big hatch so many fly fishers want to fish, Mayfly is all but done for another year. It never really exploded in 2019, instead we have seen a steady trickle hatch across all our venues that has gone on for an extended period of time. This has actually been beneficial and guests have enjoyed some superb dry fly fishing on both rivers and lakes.
As we move into July fishing will eventually become more challenging on the lakes as levels of natural food for the fish continue to grow and water temperatures increase. It remains very much worth fishing, just pick your times and venues.
River wise sport will continue right through summer, especially on our favourite Derbyshire Wye, where dry fly fishing remains good. For the fish focused on intercepting nymphs, the excitement of sight fishing a weighted nymph is hard to beat. Come join the fun!
