Plenty of fish showing

Contributed by John Garner (07.06.2005)

Introduced a friend to the Eden on Tuesday evening, fishing upstream from Musgrave Bridge. There was an excellent hatch and spinner fall from the time we arrived at about 7:30pm to when we left at about 11pm. If I didn't know better, I would have thought the river had been stocked since my last visit, there were that many fish showing.

We finished the evening with 7 fish between us up to 1 3/4 pounds approx (and I lost another 3).

The new rod that Val's just bought me for my birthday is well and truly christened!
