|Comments:||Another highly enjoyable late afternoon session on the Ellen on Wednesday this week, with great company in the form of club president and friend Dr Archie Rankin. Archie was keen to see a demonstration of how the french leader and nymphs setup works, so we targeted a number of suitable riffles, runs and pools throughout Aspatria AC's water around Ellen Villa. The river had dropped overnight and was running low, clear and cold, but despite this and the bright sunlight the method accounted for 18 spirited wild brownies in a couple of hours. Nothing big - the largest was perhaps ten inches - but two much larger fish were hooked and lost, including a pound-plus beauty that snatched the copperhead Hare's Ear in the neck of a popular sea trout run above the road bridge near Ellen Villa. Superb sport, convivial company and great to see the club's water in such good heart.|

|Comments:||A very productive and long overdue return session on the River Ellen today, upstream from Baggrow and Blennerhasset. The river had fined down nicely after the recent spates, and was at just the right height and pace for upstream nymphing. I landed a total of 40 fish to 1lbs + using the fixed line french nymphing technique currently enjoying much publicity in the game angling press. A home-tied size 14 Copperhead Hare's Ear (2.8mm bead) was the fly of choice. Takes were confident and, even from the smallest trout, were clearly registered by the high visibility indicator built in to the leader system between the long tapered section and the tippet length (I used 3.5lbs Riverge Grand Max for this). Every little pocket of water seemed to hold its own resident trout or two, and with careful wading, they could be caught almost under the rod tip even in the clear water. Stealthy and sensitive, the french nymphing technique opens up so much more of this super little river than can be fished effectively with any other method. I would be more than happy to demonstrate and coach it for any interested parties.|

|Comments:||hi, sorry for the late reply, i did get to the river on my own for an afternoon, there were no maps at the garage when i went to buy my permit, and silly me went to the wrong bridge! i went to the one on the way to gilcrux, not very good access and got tangled up, slipped. no bites, and a frustrating afternoon, however, a few days later i went to the correct bridge and had a lovely afternoon fishing the pools downstream, didnt catch anything, but had a relaxing enjoyable time, cheers, peter anderson|
