As good a place as any not to catch fish

Contributed by Troutfly (15.03.2007)

Now self-employed and working from home I switched off the mobile at 2pm and headed for an hour on the Eden above Musgrave Bridge. The weather was chilly and overcast but the river was in beatiful condition and I enjoyed casting an upstream mymph helped by a following wind. What a great place to wet a line. But shortly after commencing fishing the rain came and I retreated fishless but chilled out and feeling better for the break. Here are a couple of pics to record the condition of the river on opening day in 2007.
