Cold but productive opening day

A very cold opening day kept the fish out of sight with virtually no fish seen on the beats but they were there! Those who braved the conditions and were out on the river had a productive time 1″ copper tubes on fast sinking tips were doing the business. Although reports from the river were patchy but I know of at least 15 fish caught in the first 2 days.  Apart from the fresh fish a number of really well mended kelts and a few rawners were also caught.   A few photos of the happy anglers
