Sport: With near perfect conditions this morning we hoped the fishing would respond and it did with varied results. From the bank Anton Gysbers had two fish in short order from bell point on Cormorants. Also on the bank Mr Lloyd also had 2 fish on orange lures fished on an intermediate line. The boats however fish a little better Mr C Thomas had 6 fish from Ten Acre Foot on Daddies with a rainbow of 4lb and a brownie of 3lb making his 5 fish bag 14lb good angling!
Also on the boat season ticket holder John Sykes found a white snake stripped back on a fast glass to the trouts liking and finished with 5 fish. Top rod today is no surprise stocks resident Bob Fitzpatrick who once again has shown the way with 11 trout to size 16 f flies. Bobs top tactic was to find the calm lanes and drift down the edges fishing his small dries. Our own Paul Bebb was out today with clients and found daddies working to help them catch 3 fish. See you out there Pete.
