Victoria plum silver sticky leaves

I've noticed that I don't have anywhere near the usual amount of 'plumlets' on my Victoria this year. But I have noticed a sticky silvery substance on a couple of branches. Strangely enough the leaves don't look like pictures I've seen of silver leaf fungus. Is it the end of my wonderful plums?. I normally get a good 35lbs of fruit in the last week of August/first week of September. Can anything be done please?. Thanks.

    Perhaps it’s powdery mildew. See here

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
