That little feeder stream right in the middle of the picture ought to be a nursery for juvenile trout but all I've ever seen under that footbridge have been sticklebacks.  I think the run off from the agricultural land and some households means that the water quality is not up to a trout's required standards.  Anyway, here in the main river, this riffle and pool sequence, with its billowing fronds of Ranunculus fluitans is a happy hunting ground for the dry fly fisher who is prepared to hide in the margin.  Well it is on most days...
