Sport: There have been many good catches recorded over the last few days with the dam area really switching on. There have been a number of tactics that have been working well with damsels, dry flies and a blob and booby combo all being effective. The trout have remained high in the water and keeping your flies in the top couple of feet has been the key to success. On Saturday many anglers were practicing for the England eliminator the following day so tactics and patterns were being kept but there were lots of trout caught and with good conditions forecast for the Sunday some super fishing was on the cards and that is what happened. The top rod went to Warren Langridge with a great catch of 20 fish. Warren concentrated his efforts around the dam and along the east bank with mini blobs and boobys on a slow sinking line accounting for his haul. Following closely behind in second place was Andy Campbell with 18 trout. Andy found his fish in similar areas to Warren. Taking third spot was Neil Hodgeson who bucked the trend and headed off to the causeway where he had most of this area to himself all day. Neil landed 14 fish with dabblers being his best patterns. The best areas from the shore have been along the dam, Grindys lawn and the east bank from the spill way along to Halsteads hike and with deeper water close to the shore trout have been caught just feet away from the bank. Today Cheshire police held a friendly competition and once again good catches were recorded. In 1st place was Chris Webster 2nd Ian Wood and in 3rd place was Anton Burden. I will get rod averages and tactics etc when i can. Syotw Paul.
