Explored a bit further up the Babingley today. I walked from Castle Rising down to the A149 and crossed the road to follow the footpath upstream. I’m becoming more and more enamoured with this little stream; it really is a hidden gem. I didn’t see as many fish as I was expecting I have to admit, but the further upstream I got the more activity I saw. There were a few mayflies about, and some sedges, and fish were rising. In places it’s a bit silty, but generally, there’s plenty of weed and it just looks so trouty. I’ve posted a letter to Sandringham estate office, but to be honest I’m expecting to be disappointed. Anyway, weather permitting, on tuesday I’ll be back on the Wensum hoping to improve my record of two fish in a session. I’d also like to catch something slightly bigger. The last time I was there something decent swirled right under my fly and I’m sure it was a bigger fish. I’ll head back there first, and then probably to another beat that I have fished but haven’t caught on yet.
