I had an opportunity to repeat the extraordinary success of Tuesday...just 48hours later...but how things had changed!

I arrived with low expectations, but the thick cloud cover building quickly from the West and the light less gusty winds were promising.

Allrounder,
A fabulous fish and a great photo.
So nice to see the successful angler looking appreciatively at his fish rather than at the camera!

Best, Mike

Very best wishes, Steve,
I had a cylinder re-bore myself at the BRI more than 15 years ago.

I heard today from JH of a huge 16 lb. brown caught a few days before my visit last week.
Sadly, the phone taking the pic was nearly as old as the fish but Grandfather Brown was the real deal.

Far from a full house at Blagdon but the Rangers team had us hardy silverbacks safely afloat as soon we had walked down the jetty from 8 am.
The word was that the fishing had been tricky and the key ...

I arrived to find a deserted car park and a light Easterly wind pushing the air temp down to about 12C and cooling the water surface.

Some half dozen or so boats gradually joined me during the firs ...
