A varied week of weather with the temperature up and down and the wind of various strengths from all points of the compass. Occasional hatches of insect life have led to some great sport on dry fly but other tactics have also been required and proved successful.
Northumbrian Water visited again on Saturday and had a great day’s sport, taking 36 trout. The heaviest bag was caught by Phil Waggett at 7lb 5oz, shortly followed by Alan Bolton with 3 fish for 7lb 4oz and Dave Wilson with 3 fish for 6lb 14oz.
