We have experienced a rather better week in respect of visiting anglers who have largely been rewarded with some great sport. The exception was Saturday which had been booked for Alston Anglers’ annual visit and experienced some of the worst conditions of the year with fresh winds and torrential rain. Ken Little managed to take 3 rainbows to win the competition.
Sunday was a different kettle of fish with light winds from the South West and no rain. 15 visiting anglers brought 45 fish to the net, Nick Dales and Grant Downie accounting for ten each mainly on dries and buzzers.
The fly patterns used this week suggest the varied nature of the fishing and we have topped the stock up on Saturday so there are now even more fish to test your skills against.
Total fish brought to the net: 132 rainbow and 3 brown trout
Number of fish taken: 28
Number of visiting anglers: 66
Successful fly patterns: Buzzers, Okey Dokey, Diawl Bach, Daddy, Bibio, John Storey, beetle, CDC, Hoppers, Damsels, Cat’s Whisker, Dawson,s Olive.
