These pictures were taken at around 7am today (Sunday), I got up at 5.30am...couldn't sleep I was that excited about today's fishing opportunties. This picture was taken on the road back towards Alstonfield overlooking the Manifold Valley.
Mid Section at Dovedale. The water is still pretty high but surprisingly very clear. By evening, it should be fishing well.
Looking back from The Nursery Pool towards the stepping stones. This will be a busy spot in a few hours time. I was amazed to see that there were quite a few people arriving to walk even at 6.45am.
I'm a keen angler and whisky enthusiast. I'm lucky enough to have lived and worked on the Isle of Islay in the Scottish Hebrides, angling and dramming paradise! I fish for wild brown trout and sea trout whilst up North, back in Leek in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands I like to meet up with my pals and fish for wild brown trout, grayling and other river species in the Dane, Dove, Churnet, Manifold and Wye.
