It’s February 2020 and everyone is weather watching. Storms Ciara and Dennis bring misery with flooding, travel disruption and (for us) the possibility of cancellations.
Despite the awful weather our regular party of friendly fishermen arrive determined to have a good time. A mixed bag of fishing days follow but Day 3 brings glory for one of our party.
Mr C Harvey lands a nice bright 7lb salmon caught from a boat in high coloured water at Slates Pool, Upper Floors. The lure used was a Rapala Black & Gold. We are delighted for him and so are his pals – despite the fact they rib him mercilessly!
This is the second year in a row that Mr H is the only person to catch the bar of silver! Next year we plan to ask him to collect our lottery ticket.
