Working party update/ annual dinner

I now have some further information regarding the working party on the Dove on September the 12th. Alex’s intention is to work on two, possibly three weirs, breaching and removing the “newer” top layer from the weirs.Tools required to include crowbars and muscle power!

Meeting at Milldale around 09.30 and walking downstream to the weirs in question, the plan is to complete the works by mid afternoon,so a drink and food would also be an advisable inclusion.

Any one who can make it on September the 12th, please contact me and I’ll pass on your names and details to Alex.

The information for Ladffa’s annual dinner has also been sent out last week, either via email or letter, but anyone who hasn’t received that information please get in touch and I’ll forward them to you.

Tenkara update

Good evening all

As I sit in my office and look through the window I can see the rain is bouncing off the roads. I know we need rain for the rivers and gardens but the English weather doesn’t seem to know when to stop, as its all or nothing!

As a follow up to my recent Tenkara post I would like to pass on a web site that another member related to me. Discover Tenkara is run by Paul Gaskell, of Wild Trout Trust fame, and John Pearson both of whom are very keen  Tenkara enthusiasts,  to say the least.

On their web site access is given, (some free) to video’s, teach in’s and tactics for Tenkara fishing on streams along with techniques from Japanese anglers, and it is well worth a visit.

I have also started tying Tenkara flies. Simple styles like reverse spiders really. If any one wants to look at them please email me and I’ll explain how I tie them and materials used, along with a pic or two!

Tight lines
