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.
