Good fishing, poor weather sums up the week at the fishery. Odd patches of calm periods have seen trout feeding on the surface on hatches of olives and Hawthorn flies all over the lakes. All too often though a cool, fresh breeze has put them down again.
That having been said we have had some fine catches: 14 rods brought 79 fish to the net on Monday and 13 rods brought 50 to the net on Tuesday.
On Saturday we were visited by the Dalston Angling Club who held their second meet here this season. The competition was won by Les McVittie who caught a bag of 3 fish weighing 6lb 14oz.

If anyone is missing the top section of their rod you left it here about three weeks ago! I have kept it for you in the office.
