Unseasonably chilly and windy, and with more rain than expected, today was very quiet at Stocks. The banks were left to the three families of Greylag geese and their young who kept watch by the jetty all day. Only three rods were out on the boats.
By early afternoon the rain fizzled out and the wind eased and the brave were rewarded with some good sport. In the relative haven of Grindys father and son team, the Sheltons, enjoyed good sport with 9 fish to the boat fishing floating lines and a variety of dry flies as well as boobies. Derek Moore ventured out mid afternoon to find over 10 fish, fishing areas from the Dam to the Causeway, using a variety of methods.
Poor weather in the morning can give way to some great sport in the afternoons.
