Green Holographic Diawl Bach
Red Holographic Nemo Cruncher
Orange Foam Daddy Log Legs
Hot spots have been Bell Point, Hollins Bay, The Dam and the Alders.
A lot of the fish are tight in so don’t be afraid to cast parallel and work the margins.
Antoon Gysbers comes every Friday and has consistently caught bags between 6 and 8 the last few weeks on nymphs fished tight in. Antoon also usually only fishes for a few hours as well. Top angling!
Colin Fitzjohn had a short session yesterday taking 7 on blobs and damsels from bell point.
The hot spots recently have been the Dam Arm (ten acer foot, the alders, grindy’s lawn) as well as Ben’s Beach and the Boulders. Fish are coming from all over the reservoir though so don’t be afraid to mover around.
Curtis Hitchmough had 28 on Sunday fishing ten acre foot and Paul Davision had 40+ fish on Saturday from all round the lake.
Fish are been taken both in open water and tight to the bank with long drifts on dries doing the business.
On Sunday we had the Air Ambulance Blind Pairs Charity Match. Always a good event and we managed to raise £800+ (exact figure to follow) massive thanks to Derek Moore for his organisation and Felicity Appleton for helping and organising some fantastic raffle prizes. Thanks to all that donated prizes to the raffle including Kilnsey Park Fly Fishery who donated a free half day or half price full day ticket.
The match was fished 10-5 and 34 anglers caught 196 meaning a rod average of 5.76
With the pairs being randomly draw after the match the results are always a surprise!
Top spot went to Andy Cooper and and Ryan Richardson, who also caught the biggest fish at 7lb 2oz. Andy caught 22 fish for 44lb 2oz on a Biscuit Blob, Green Holo Diawl Bach and a Cat Booby. Fantastic angling Andy. Ryan added 4 fish to make the pairs total 55lb 6oz.
Second was Gwyneth Mooney and Derek Moore with 19 fish for 38lb 8oz
Third went to Shaun Gaskell and Steve Bland with 36lb 15oz.
A quick mention for the top three individual rods:
Andy Cooper: 22 fish for 44lb 12oz
Neil Heath: 14 fish for 29lb 1oz
Derek Moore: 13 fish for 26lb
And of course the smallest fish…which went to our own Ben Dobson with a 1lb 6oz! Top work boss.
