Cumbria Fishing Festival a Success:
With the weather behaving itself the Cumbria Fishing Festival has been an outstanding success over the last week as many events were fully booked. Tony Riley and myself ran a couple of well attended stillwater courses, ending our week at Farleton View fishery yesterday. Baking temperatures made for some tough fishing but all in all the day was excellent as thousands of damselfly decided to emerger. This proved a tremendous help when discussing the life cycle of such insects to keen fishermen.
