Whore’s Drawers:


Our erratic weather continues, which in turn is causing river levels to behave like the proverbial whore’s drawers.  Shifting daily, website charts read like a range of mountain peaks.  Two days ago I was having a ball with hatching fly and rising grayling. Then heavy overnight rain lifted the Eden and surrounding rivers once more.  This morning it’s still way too high and with heavy showers forecast may even rise once more.  Forecaster are predicting a settled spell next week when hopefully at long last the rivers may finally stabilize.
