Despite levels fluctuating between 15 and 50 inches during the course of the week, when settled, the river gave up her bounty graciously.
One angler on the Sauce Pool had 5 fish in just over one hour, minutes before the river again rose dramatically.
Although the greatest majority of these fish were very coloured there has been the odd sighting of silver ones.

Eddie Shakespeare has penned this little ode for me,
There are many good reasons for joking
And one had just entered my head
If you can’t have a joke whilst you are living
How the hell can you joke when you’re dead
