An explanation?

http://www.rivertweed.org.uk/news/?p=3840

Another slow session at the weekend got me feeling a little bit despondent. With grannom streaming off in their thousands, just where were the fish? Nymphing with suitably 'caddis-y' patterns produced a few fish but overall the going was extremely slow.

Well the above link might go some way to providing an explanation. If, as this study of trout scale readings suggests, the trout growth and related activity is 4-6 weeks behind normal, then we can expect some sort of normality to be reached any time now......hopefully!
