Sweethope Fishing Report May 19th 2014

A beautiful day here at Sweethope as I write this report. The Sun is shining, there is a gentle breeze from the South East and the cuckoo just keeps on calling until dusk. Most of the week has been overcast and has seen some great fishing.

The Electrical fishing club visited us on Tuesday for a competition which was won by Mr. W. Ross with a 3 fish bag, weighing 9lb 4oz.

Rob Frame has visited us twice this week and has totalled a catch of 50 fish.

In total 519 fish were caught and  421 returned safely to the water. The biggest reported was a rainbow of 6lb.

A total of 95 rods visited the fishery and good sport was had by all.

Successful fly patterns: Dawson’s olive, GRHE, black gnat, zulu, bumble, buzzers, shipman’s, diawl bach, bibio, black spider, Kate McClaren, muddler, yellow dancer.
