The snow showers that came in yesterday afternoon continued this morning until about midday as the wind strength steadily increased. The sun showed itself mid afternoon and all commented that this slowed the sport considerably. Conditions were not ideal for being outdoors however the hardy souls that did venture out to fish were rewarded with some excellent sport and fine catches. Pulling lures of various patterns caught fish, as did dries and buzzers which accounted for many of the fish caught by Jo Halton and Terry Worthington. Terry made particular mention of the Shipman’s buzzer.
Messrs Tyndall and Greenwood had a hard day’s sport bringing 12 to the boat between them, the wind speed and direction making it difficult to find a good drift .
The forecast is for it to be breezy again tomorrow and then much calmer from Wednesday. Windy or not the sport is excellent and with Stocks being the shape it is there is always somewhere to find shelter, whether on the boat or bank.
See you next time, Nick.
