River Fly Monitoring

The wealth and health of river flies in all their forms is possibly the back bone of angling, even if you’re not a fly fisherman the fish you seek rely heavily upon the invertebrates as a food source while the numbers and variety are a strong indicator of the health of the river.

You can become involved in monitoring and supporting the health of the river through River Fly Monitoring. Details of a forthcoming workshop are provided here. An opportunity to get involved.IMG_2832 (1)
