7th Jul 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 7th July 2019

A mixed bag of weather this week has meant some days were tougher than others with anglers having to fish deeper on some of the hot sunny days and yet still doing well on dries when conditions allowed, lots of blue damsels are about this time of year so it’s worth trying Damsel patterns on some of the brighter days.
