Stocks has fished really well for a lot of anglers today with many catching 3 fish on half days so well done all. Here’s the best of the rest of the bunch…
A quick congratulations to youngster and first time fly fisher Andrew Fleming for catching his first fish on a fly rod, a lovely 2lb 4oz blue trout taken on a fritz. Well done Andrew.
Mick Whiteside caught 7 fish today on a half day ticket. Mick used an orange fish and his best fish was a 3lb 8oz rainbow. Nice angling.
Phil Davies had another good day up at the dam and on the east bank catching 10 fish in total with his 5 fish bag weighing a whopping 23lb thanks to a lovely 9lb blue. He caught on buzzers all day. Well done Phil.
Mr E Parson had a great half day out there from Barn Quarry. He caught 10 fish on a 2 fish ticket and one of his 2 fish was a 10lb 70z rainbow. He caught using a dawsons olive. Well done bud thats a good result.
Ken Whiteside was top rod from the bank today on his half day sporting ticket. He had 13 fish using a UDF (I think thats what it says) from Hartleys and Bell Point. Good angling Ken!
Ralph Cooper did well catching 5 fish from the boat today. He used various lures and his best fish was a 3lb rainbow tipping his 5 fish bag to 11lb. He caught all over the reservoir.
Paul Bebb and Chris Biddle were out today and they caught 9 fish using various dries again all over the reservoir. They also missed and lost a lot of others. Thats how it goes as we all know but well done for the fish had!
Keith Charnock was the top roid from the boat today managing 15 fish in total. Keith fished around willow island and newclose bay and saw action using diawl bachs and buzzers. His 5 fish bag weighed 13lb 8oz. Good effort !
