"Saw a couple of dark fish a 50-100 above the "rapids" where the Nydala stretch begins. Even if you had been allowed to fish there, it would have been very difficult to get through all the vegetation and at the same time get the fly out. Have probably been standing there for a long time and are difficult to catch. Too little water today apparently (9)"
