The usual buzzer techniques proved effective until the cold snap, when things turned decidedly bloodwormy.
Both olive and black midge pupae imitations fooled fish prior to the mid-week coolness whilst during it blacks and traditional blood-red worms and pinkies were the answer. A static or dead-slow retrieve approach was the best.
With the exception of those couple of days olives and cinnamon sedge were again in evidence during afternons with olive shuttlecocks and slimly-dressed green f's good at fooling the wind drifting adults-though it was usually essential to move them down-wind at the correct speed using careful line management.
