Well this weekend has been exiting! this Saturday I went river fishing with previous England International Lisa Isles. firstly, thank you Lisa for taking the time to come and share your knowledge with me!
we arrived at the river (Calder) at around 10AM, upon arrival there were fish rising all over the place! the weather was the same as it has been for the past couple of weeks now, hot hot hot! and the river was running low.

Well this past weekend has been busy! A 4am wake up on Saturday morning to travel down to the CLA game fair and fishing on Sunday!
Firstly on Saturday me and my family visited the annual CLA game fair which, this year was held at Blenheim palace in Oxfordshire. We set off from yorkshire at 4am to a thunderstorm and very humid conditions. However the further south we got the clouds got lighter and the rain stopped.
This past week has seen three evening sessions, finishing work at 4pm and heading straight to the river
On Tuesday me and dad decided to take a walk further upstream, we fished just below the weir by sowerby bridge cricket club.
Salmon fishing is something which over the past few months has been high up on my ‘to do list’ and on Saturday 5th July I was finally able to tick it off! I was given the opportunity by the inspirational Anne Woodcock.
Anne organised the day to raise money for the brilliant charity Casting for Recovery. A charity that is there for women who’s lives have been affected by breast cancer and can join other ladies on retreats and learn to fly fish. The retreats also give the ladies the opportunity to meet new people and share their story with them, and also have a jolly good time!
