JULY AND AUGUST

SEPTEMBER

Sometimes the best month off all! Fish are beginning to feed more eagerly as spawning time nears and early autumn rains bring fresh water.

Evening fishing to sedges is probably best but there will be lake olives, chironomids and the usual land insects. So now the fisherman's year is simplified as much as possible, perhaps too much.
