Still too warm for trout fishing, there is an abundance of fly life now and they keep nipping off the top all day long. Dog days, normally July and Aug but extends into early Sept. try very small fly patterns.

Not having caught a fish from the Aire yet.Would it be advisable NOT to eat Trout from this river?As there seems to be quite a few anglers on S.L would it be feasable to form an angling club? S.L. Pisscatorials would seem to be a good title as most of you like a pint or three! Have I put in too many S's?LOL

If you do get the pisscatorials going Im allways up for a pisscatorial up so keep me in mind.

If you do get the pisscatorials going Im allways up for a pisscatorial up so keep me in mind. I'd be more than happy to meet up with you for a few hours fishing. I'm not that keen on fishing on my own. It would have to be midweek though as my weekends are usually taken up with my Family.Fly or course would be fine but somewhere not too expensive? I did go down on the Aire nr CalverleyBridge and found a nice spot. I tried a swimfeeder and lost my hook and feeder after the first cast! I had some good bites but I lost another feeder ,my last one, so went home after 2 hrs. But, I did enjoy the time down there ,it was so nice, quiet and peacefull
