    Morning all.

    I have just been passed the counter figures for October First

    Waddow 785 total fish up. 28 fish down. 344 under 4 lbs and 413 over 4 lbs.

    Calculating and comparing to the end of October 2016 we have a total of 384 fish over 4lbs more this season ( Grilse & Salmon?).

    Up at Locks the up count was 111 with 8 fish counted down 32 fish under 4lbs and 71 over 4lbs

    Hope these figures are interesting.

    That’s that then. Another salmon season passed, a good one for some, and a poorer one for others. Its been a case of Time X Effort = Results. I went out to try a new rod yesterday morning, I took a flask of coffee and sat in our hut reflecting back on the season. I only went to try the rod but the wind did not help and an angler was fishing down the pool I wanted to try the rod out on. He told me that he had returned a hen fish just before I arrived, If I had gone to that pool straight away who knows the rod could have been christened. Well there’s always next season. We chatted and he was going to wander up the river to some other pools and as he was leaving me he shouted
    “See you next year when the swallows come back” I think that will be what me and Bob are thinking. Winter well.
