The table below shows the results to 11th place for the Northwest Odds n Sods that was held on Stocks this weekend. We are not sure just how many grand final places will be allocated to the Northwest region so we don’t know just where the cut off point will be. I would like to wish the best of luck to all those that make it to the final, I hope that you go all the way to the 2010 England Team. Ben

All 26 anglers will be back again tomorrow to do it all over again on day 2 with an accumulative score over the two days determining the winners
On the bank today Peter Atkinson had a cracking days sport on a five-hour ticket landing and releasing 8 fish all from Bell Point on Hoppers and Kate Mclarens peter commented on the fact that the browns were going mad for the dries today. Also on Bell Point Phillip Broadhurst had 4 fish with a cracking 5lb 8oz included in his bag his best fly was a pheasant tail nymph. With warmer cloudy weather forecast for tomorrow the fish are bound to be looking up again. See you in the Lodge Pete.

Stocks report Friday 26th June

Report Author:    Matthew
Best Catch:    9 fish for Chris Stanley
Heaviest Bag:    5 fish for 12lb Chris Stanley
Best Rainbow:    3lb 8oz Chris Stanley
Best Brownie:    Several for 2lb 8oz
Best Blue:
Bank Rod Av:    2.20 fish per angler
Boat Rod Av:    3.7 fish per angler
Sport:  The wind has certainly started to drop away and while the temperatures remain high the fish are certainly looking up again. Chris Stanley had a good session from the boat with 9 fish. Chris commented that a number of fish were coming short right at the boat, and maybe with a longer hang they would have connected too.
With tomorrows competition looming few boat anglers were keen to divulge the killer methods! However I can reveal that while I was out on the safety boat there were rods bending all over! Out side of the practice boats the top methods seemed to by either dries (be it daddy’s or beetles) or indeed nymphs just fished subsurface.
Numerous bag limits reached today and am sure it’s going to be a top weekend.
I have just taken a look at the forecast and believe me this could be one of the best weekends so far this season!
Tight lines Matthew

Sport: Today we saw some great weather with warm overcast conditions this morning then this afternoon the sun came out. With the cloud cover this morning there were plenty of trout rising but there was a spell at about 2pm when the surface of the reservoir was crawling with fish, I can only remember one other time when I have seen more rising fish. With all this surface activity it is no surprise that dry flies were by far the best patterns with all the best catches being taken right off the top. Mr Dunn and Mr Leyland caught 15 fish between them with Mr Dunn landing 10 including a super overwintered double weighing exactly 10lb. Hoppers were their most effective pattern and as predicted yesterday they caught all their fish drifting right in the middle of the reservoir. Frank Hartley landed a credible 7 fish with specimens weighing up to 6lb. As with other successful anglers, Frank fished various dry flies right out in open water. With the warm weather set to continue we should see more great top of the water action.  See you on the water Paul.
