    Elinor continues on great form with a rod ave of 4.6 and numerous quality fish.
    On cloudy days the bank is fishing best although boats are scoring well on brighter days.
    Floater or midge tip with a washing line is generally the best method although some anglers are taking fish on lures using intermediates.
    Water clarity is superb and prospects are good for the upcoming Fur & Feather.
