GET YOURSELVES DOWN TO THE RIVER - THERE ARE FISH RUNNING.

Gerald reports a fresh, tagged 10-pounder from Done's Meadow and Noel, fishing a bit further upstream at the weekend, saw plenty of fish, of which he hooked five and landed three. John showed me a photo of a monstrous Brownie he caught at Sutton Green and even I have had a couple of sea-trout - on dry fly! Dave hooked eight sea-trout one evening last week, all but two in daylight, landing five of them. Those were on a little teal-blue-and-silver.

It has been raining here for the past twenty-four hours but it's that light, wetting stuff rather than the torrents that make rivers rise, so that the upper Dee is hardly affected. However, the little River Ceiriog is in flood and has raised levels in the Dee below there - ie on all our BODSA water. Combine that with some more high tides this week and we may reasonably hope for a big run of fish, so I know where I'm going to be when I have any spare time!

Friday evening is again our monthly Noggin 'n' Natter at the Royal Oak in Bangor on Dee. We have a had a couple of good evenings recently with wives accompanying husbands which makes it a much more social occasion. We hope to see you there.
