It will be on a day or season ticket basis.
I will announce full details and maps in time for the new season.
However yesterday I decided to have a paddle along it just to see how it was. The river was heavily coloured and carrying about 18" of water and the debris that goes with that.
I was uncertain whether to take a rod or not but.....you have to don't you? :)
Trolling was difficult upstream as with the heavy flow, debris and varying depths similarly downstream as with wind and flow I was travelling at 4.5mph without touching the pedals.
I did have one take and ended up playing a carrier bag for 5 minutes, it was a tough battle though. :)
The FF has shown a lot of silvers sheltering from the heavy flow of the main river, I though there must be a predator or two around. Well a selection of pike lures produced nothing so I scaled down to see if I could winkle out a little perch or two.
After trying a few different lures I started twitching a small jig head back and bang success.
Now I know many of you have had some monsters but big perch had eluded me until this one engulfed my lure and came to the kayak.
A very nervous time as I had no landing net and had to do a very gentle and scary belly lift. Even more frightening as this perch was obviously going to be a PB for me.
Well luck was on my side and indeed it was a PB at 2pounds 9 ounces. Very happy that a day meant for exploring had produced a cracking fish in lousy conditions.
