The Store Report for Sept31-7

Rain in the forecast just how much and for how long is hard to guess as the forecasts have been so far out for some time.

Heavy rain is due to hit monday and tuesday, with wind from the eaterly quarter, likewise the weekend gone was to bring rain and heavy at times but we had skiffy rain and it moved through very quickly and cleared which has been fantastic.

Rivers in the fishery are all in excellent condition and despite the pressure the results have been so good for weeks now. Fish are holding right throughout the fishery in all rivers and often running prior to rain as well.

The next few days indicated in the forecast is for easterlies and heavy rain, but as often happens it may tend to the east, lets hope so.

Take care on the water and feel free to give us a call for an update cheers stella 073868953
