River Ribble

We Fished the same stretch of the Ribble as last week with a little more success. I suppose it will take a little time to get used to this beat and the best way to fish hear seams to be Across and Down with Spiders, (not something I am that good at yet!).

One fish caught, 6oz approx. - Salmon Parr.

Olives were hatching like mad, in swarms!

Fell to the deadly Black Peacock Spider, Olive-ish I suppose!

 Phil, as always showing that he can walk on water when it comes to fishing and managed two Brownies!

River Ribble

Had a few pulls on a team of spiders whilst the Olives hatched furiously from early afternoon but not able to hook one. The fish did start to rise for the Olives consistently for about an hour but couldn't tempt them with a dry. Phil managed a Grayling of 1.5lbs.
Small Dark Olive

A nice afternoon despite the consistent drizzle that just wouldn't quit!
