The Lowther again, in heavy rain.
After heavy rain yesterday, the Eden was a bit too coloured to fish today so I took the opportunity to re-visit the same stretch of the Lowther I fished last week.
This is a stream which seems to respond to a bit of fresh coming through, so I was hopeful of some decent sport, even though heavy rain meant that the session would be a short one.
With a brace of nymphs, I worked my way up through the gorge, making short casts into likely looking pockets and runs. Results were disappointing though - only a couple of small fish took the PTN and despite a substantial hatch of olives around mid-morning, a change to spiders failed to produce.
