A successful week at Sweethope with both Monday and Sunday giving great conditions. On Monday 10 rods caught 41 rainbow, 3 blue and 2 brown trout from the top lake and 8 rainbow and5 blue trout from the bottom. Both Nick Dales and Grant Howie did well but prize fish went to a young visitor, Harry Raynor who caught a 4lb rainbow as his first ever fish.
Sunday saw an even larger number of fish caught with 21 rods catching 54 rainbow, 5 blue and 2 brown trout from the top lake and 20 rainbow and 2 blue trout from the lower lake. Harry Raynor paid us a return visit with his sister Millie both catching a rainbow trout as did another young visitor to the fishery, Aidan Russell.
