River Frome - Wool
 
0745 - 1500
 
​Mild, sunny spells interspersed with fine drizzle. VERY windy! At 10ºC.
 
​6 Grayling: 5 over 1lb - all between 1lb 4oz - 1lb 11oz. 2 Small trout. River at 'normal' levels with a bit of colour. 92cm at East Stoke.
 
​Last weekend of the season here and it was a bit of a slog in challenging conditions - wind in particular was very strong and downstream in most swims. Bites at a real premium, but thankfully usually resulted in a half decent (and very fat) grayling.




Good on you for braving it Chris, I did wonder whether you'd be able to resist another trip there. I was quiver tipping for chub on the Thames, trotting would have been no fun in yesterday's conditions. A 5-14 gracing the net vindicated the choice of tactics.

Nice one!! Thankfully I nearly had the place to myself - only one other angler in the top field. But I should have spent some time below the road bridge (on that bit you called the wilderness!) A couple of anglers there when I went to have a looky and they'd both had 2lbers out! Ah well, always next season!
