Stocks:Thursday 10th May.

Sport: The top catch from the bank today went to the rod of John Turner with 9 trout including a couple of brownies weighing 3lb 8oz apiece. John fished all the way along the east bank and caught his fish on a midge tip line and orange blobs. Out on the boats were Bob Fitzpatrick and Steve Bland who tempted 10 fish between them. They drifted all over the northern shallows and caught all their fish on various density sinking lines and blobs and boobys. Many anglers commented on the numbers of fish that were hooked and then lost, sometimes they stick and sometimes they don’t. With the weather to change bringing more cloud and lighter winds the flies and tactics will no doubt change Syotw Paul.
