Short low water session yesterday afternoon/evening just downstream from Ford, and my only chance was a lost fish at distance which slipped the hook. Andy carried on after I'd left and winkled one out from upstream of the upper sluice on the Ford straight. It's still early doors yet.
Today, the 17th, I called off a boat trip due to westerlies around 15mph. Looking out back at HW, It was a wise decision as there are plenty of 'white tops' showing.
