Irwell Nuttall Park 29 April 14

First time to Nuttall Park this season couldn't get there until the afternoon.

As always the river looked fine, I usually wade across the river at the top of this picture and wade down by the far bank. this bank is steep and dangerous to fish from.

The river has changed some what over the winter the water by the far bank is deeper than it was before. I did wade across and start to fish nymph. Missed a couple and also had a few nudges.

The sky became very dark and threatening, heavy rain and thunder seemed to be on its way so I got out of the river, did not want to be caught on the wrong side if the river was to rise.

Tried fishing from the near bank, but it was too difficult for me, another early finish.

It did not rain after all.
