Elinor is showing signs of jumping back to life. On calmer days there are plenty of fish surface feeding but strong winds on Friday, Saturday, Sunday did hamper sport.
Best methods for boat and bank anglers have been:
-dries or damp dries
-washing line with a fab or booby combined with buzzers
-pulling lures/snakes on a floater or intermediate
Water temperature is down to 16.5C and the algae continues to diminish.
