A slightly damp River Ribble!

Members, or rather three of us dedicated souls fished the River Ribble at Mitton on Sunday, (I think the fair weather fishermen were kept away by a bit of precipitation)! Despite the weather the river was running low and clear and the fish were seen to be rising at times for the surprisingly varied fly life that continued to hatch off the water all afternoon & evening. Between us we managed a total of eight fish including grayling, Brownies and even the odd chub.

In the morning some of us attended the Prince Albert Angling Society open day at Ribchester. The day was very enjoyable with some great bargains in the second hand tent and some great talks were given on everything piscatorial by speakers including Charles Jardine & Martin James.

The fly that worked for me on the day. A hairs ear Clink fish Duo with a hairs ear nymph underneath.

Other methods that were successful included Czech Nymphing and North Country Spider styles.
