Sport: We saw some mixed results today. There were some extremely good catches and some anglers struggled to find a method. Out on the boats Paul Davison and Ron Melling fished dries over open water to catch a whopping twenty four trout between them.
Dries worked well for others as well. Ricky Newbolt and Robert Milne had 18 trout to 3lbs to their boat. Eleven of which fell to dries and the other seven took damsels.
Darren Booth and Nick Donald also had a cricket score to their boat on a variety of flies
Pete Murphy caught a cracking 10lb 8oz rainbow see the picture below. Pete caught it whilst bank fishing near Bell Point.
Jim and Richard Walton are staying in our accommodation and enjoying a three day fishing trip. Jim also had big fish today that tipped the scales to 10lbs 6oz. Jim caught it on a Montana fished over the main basin.
The best catches from the shore fell to Ken Whiteside with seven and Richard wincer with six. Ken fish udf lures along Hartley’s bank this morning and Richard used diawls this afternoon.. Tight Lines Ben
