Various diary updates of fishing, wildlife, surfing and kayaking trips mainly in the West and South West of England. As I live near Bristol (UK) many of the blogs will be focussed around this area.

Wet and warmer on the Cam Brook
Met up with Red today fished the Cam Brook just south of Bath. The morning had been dry but by the time we hit the bank it was drizzle which persisted throughout day. Supposedly warmer as the car registered double figures with the rain although in the stream I certainly didn't feel comfortable. The wetness and wind seemed to create problems fishing in confined space today with tangles and hook ups with trees a plenty. Despite it all caught two lovely wild Brown Trout nearing a pound in one shallow run on the nymph. Both were rising in the rain but chose to ignore the dry. Caught one other smaller fish and hooked and lost several others. Bow and arrow cast all the way today.
