Another good week with plenty of fish caught in both lakes. On balance buzzer fishing has been the the most successful method but a wide range of wets, dries and lures have been employed with success. The week-end’s warm weather has brought on a hatch of tiny black flies but they are very difficult to match. Fish of the week was that caught by Gary Braden on Saturday, a 12lb 2oz rainbow. Gary was fishing with nine other members of the Fly Tying Guild in a competition.
We also hosted 12 members of the Northumbrian Water Anglian Club on Saturday, one of the busiest days of this season so far.
Number of fish taken: 54
Number of fish returned: 195
Number of visiting anglers: 104
Successful fly patterns: Hare’s ear, diawl bach, buzzers, butcher, Shipman’s buzzer, sedge, muddler.
