Wet cool and very windy best describes today here at Stocks. Bank anglers have said it was hard to cast with the strong westerly wind blowing straight down the res and as a result, boat anglers have had more success overall. Still some good results from both areas…..
A handful of anglers saw 2 fish a piece from in and around Hollins and out towards bell point as well as up at the Dam Wall.
Mr P. Blight had 6 fish today from the Dam Wall. He caught all of them using dries, a sedge fly in particular.
Peter Kosminski had 9 fish today from Bell Point and in Hollins Bay. Peter caught using a booby and his 5 fish bag weighed 10lb 12oz. Well done.
John Mitchell had 3 fish today using a bibio hopper and a brown hopper.
Nigel Williams had 6 fish to the boat today. His 3 fish bag weighed 7lb.
Wayne and Mark Knowles had 8 fish to their boat today with 5 falling to Mark and the other 3 to Wayne. Marks bag weighed 9lb 12oz and Waynes weighed 6lb. They caught in the N Shallows on daddies.
Derek Moore had 8 fish to his boat. Derek caught at the Dam, Eakings Flats and Hollins Bay using dries, stripping blobs and a cats whisker too. Well in Derek, glad to hear you were getting them chasing blobs when other tactics weren’t so fruitful!
Stuart Llewellyn was top rod today with 15 fish to the boat. Stuart caught off Hollins Point and up at the Dam using daddies and cats whiskers with roughly 8 fish a piece to each fly. His best fish was a 4lb 8oz blue. Nice angling Stuart!
