A huge buzzer hatch has been going non stop for the last few weeks with the fish being fed a diet of miniscule black smuts. The fish being very difficult to tempt with the exception of a few big bags to CDC emergers size 16 & 18 . The last couple of days seems to have seen the hatch slowly coming to an end, so normal back end fishing should resume.
