I can't ever think of a period in the history of the Avon when such catches have been made. I have to admit that despite my apparent retirement within the realms of the estate the politics of the wider fishery world is once more beginning to take up more of my time.
The carp have certainly taken the message onboard and seem to have their heads well down. However, with so many moving parts and partiesthere will be further challenges in ensuring water companies believe they have been treated with fairness and consistency throughout the process.
Also as a part of this natural regime we would have seen beavers creating their dams and pools, further increasing the available habitat for our fish.

Somerley ofwat business planning consultation report seem to belie the old belief that the females can be at least twice the weight of the males present in the lake.
It must continue to deliver for customers in line with its statutory duties, but sees itself increasingly criticised from both sides of the political spectrum. In a month or two I will begin the tree work to ensure sufficient light reaches the river to encourage weed growth, restrict flow, ensuring bright gravel for the coming year.
Jane is back ofwat business planning consultation report the office and has been down on the Park talking to the ewes again and captured this great shot of the girls on the mobile.
Planning for the future Our Purpose Our vision is to be the national leader in the provision of sustainable water and waste water services and we are constantly looking for more efficient, innovative ways to improve our services to make life even better.
Fortunately the organisation of the event is excellent and it leaves us to get the estate polished up before the guests arrive. We are either on the threshold of a explosion of fish stocks on the Avon or there is an element of survival we have yet to understand.
You may be a season of mellow fruitfulness and harvest, mushrooms in the meadows and chestnuts below the yellowing trees. Along with the EA I am still seeking to shed more light on the impact of this eye fluke and will obviously let readers know if anything of further interest turns up.
I suppose we have about a mile of such channel about the estate, which I often think should be brought back into a more productive state. The paper sets out considerations that need to be taken into account when deciding whether to change the length of price controls or stagger control periods.
A couple of minutes chat to get the whereabouts of our mink and I moved along the bank a further twenty yards or so to see if it would put in an appearance.

Mind you it took fifty years for them to realise their weed cutting and dredging had completely buggered up the Middle Avon so we may have some time to wait. The lack of numbers banked would point to there being a very limited run of spring fish this season. The remnant swarm I must thank Brenda of warbler fame for pointing out.
They are already thickening up and looking well, particularly in light of the current heat wave that is proving very difficuly for many young trees.

Endured is probably the most apt description for the majority of us who suffered as conditions swung from high flows out in the fields for weeks before rocketing water temperatures drove us from the banks.
