WHAT OUR CON­TRIB­U­TORS ARE DO­ING THIS MONTH

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - CONTENTS -

RICHARD FAULKS

T&S pho­tog­ra­pher Richard has just re­turned from a trip to the River Helms­dale, where he lost what would have been his first sal­mon. He is plan­ning to keep things lo­cal for a while, fish­ing Rut­land's small streams for wild brown trout.

ALED DAVIES

Al­though his sea­son has been a bit slower than usual due to the dry weather, river re­porter Aled has plenty of fish­ing planned on the Llan­deilo club wa­ter of the Tywi. He of­ten fishes a team of wee dou­bles in the faster runs at dusk for sea-trout and pos­si­bly grilse, be­fore fish­ing slower pools in full dark­ness.

MIKE WEAVER

The heat has brought Mike’s fish­ing to a tem­po­rary stand­still, but he has a cou­ple of fly-ty­ing demon­stra­tions planned, in­clud­ing one at the Coun­try­man’s Fair at Wer­ring­ton Park near Launce­s­ton in early Au­gust. If we don't get rain soon, he’s think­ing of fish­ing for carp with a dry-fly on a nearby pool.

JON BEER

Jon is tak­ing his camper van – and Philip – to the wa­ters of Dum­fries and Galloway, some­where he's al­ways driven past and never re­ally ex­plored. On the way they'll have a night's bus­tard fish­ing on the Eden, with a morn­ing's char fish­ing on Con­is­ton to break the jour­ney home.

CHRIS M C CULLY

Con­trib­u­tor Chris Mc­cully will be grumpily fish­ing for mul­let on the fly, and as he’s not suc­ceeded be­fore, he’s sure he will fail as usual. He will also be trav­el­ling to Done­gal to fish for sea-trout and sal­mon, hav­ing tied plenty of flies, in­clud­ing the Done­gal Blue, the Ray­mond and the Sil­ver Daddy.

RON­NIE GLASS

Trout Surgery au­thor Ron­nie is re­cov­er­ing from a back in­jury. Ow­ing to the low wa­ter con­di­tions on his home rivers he has been re­ly­ing on small, lo­cal still­wa­ters, Chat­ton and Thrun­ton, for sport. He is look­ing for­ward to fish­ing the Scot­tish Na­tional Fi­nal in Septem­ber and dry-fly fish­ing at Cold­ing­ham Loch.
