Last season fishing was again leased at Mechi Farm, Blennerhasset. Much of this stretch is narrow, tree-lined and fast flowing 'pocket water,' ideally suited to the roving angler employing short-line fly-fishing and spinning tactics. It is certainly capable of producing quality fish; Dr Clark Colman used light spinning gear to take twelve good wild brownies, including a personal best for the Ellen of fourteen inches and 1lb 1oz in weight. Clark's successful lure was a size 1 gold Mepps presented on 5lb line, which also accounted for a very acrobatic escapee rainbow trout of around 2lbs, and a small hooked-and-lost herling sea trout.
