Half a dozen members of South Molton Angling Club attended a Riverfly count combined with Westcountry CSI (Citizens Scientist Investigations). https://wrt.org.uk/project/become-a-citizen-scientist/ They enjoyed a Spring day in glorious sunshine beside the beautiful River Bray near Brayley Bridge. The results from both exercises exceeded all expectations with plenty of river life present. https://www.riverflies.org

These delightful fish are undoubtedly etched upon many minds as small fish caught as children exploring streams and rivers.
