Nice feedback from Keith Rishworth about fishing at Lower Blackhall
I have emailed you in the past with our previous experiences at Lower Blackhall and I give below a brief account of our successes on the Dee at Lower Blackhall last week i.e. week commencing 7th May 2012.
Along with two friends Andrew Thompson from near Skipton and David Oversby from Ingleton in North Yorkshire, we fished hard all week on good water and were rewarded with a fish each. David caught first, a fresh run 10lb Salmon and Andrew the following day with a sea liced Salmon weighing 9lbs.
Things were beginning to look a little bleak for yours truly as the week drew to a close, however through perseverance and dogged determination I was lucky enough to be rewarded with a 20lb Springer on the last day. It was a wide, deep fish and measured 37″ from the inside of it’s tail to the tip of it’s nose, a bar of silver.
What a great week it turned out to be and we are already looking forward to next year.
Many thanks to Colin Simpson and Lawrence Ross for making us feel so welcome at Lower Blackhall and in particular to Colin for his help and guidance on the river. Colin’s sense of humour combined with his skills as an expert Ghillie, fisherman and fly tyer make our week so much more enjoyable.
