BANK HOUSE FLY FISHERY AUG 24TH TO SEPT 3RD

BANK HOUSE FLY FISHERY AUG 24TH TO SEPT 3RD
A slower than usual start on August 24th proved to be just a minor blip as the good sport quickly returned thereafter. Our chunky rainbows have been providing great sport with lots 3lb fish being taken, and the occasional appearance from some of our huge resident browns really spiced things up. Enough to get anyone’s pulse rate up!
Proving to be Mr consistent, Mr M Peter from Overton made three visits to us and landed a total of 26 trout. Olive fritz, Cats Whiskers and Hot Head damsels were his weapons of choice and mightily successful they were too.
Mr Francis from Lancaster caught eight trout on beetles and hoppers, he had rainbows to 3lbs and browns to 3lbs 8oz.
Tom Smith tempted a cracking brownie of 10lbs to cat’s whisker. Tom returned it to water to fight another day.
Fred Squires from Garstang and P Davie from Westhead both took six rainbows up to 3lbs on buzzers and Mr L Walsh from Oswaldtwistle had a nice rainbow of 5lbs 8oz, which also took a buzzer. Buzzers have accounted for quite a lot of the fish caught over this period.
Mr A Leigh from Preston took twelve rainbows to 4lbs fishing an orange grub pattern.
However the catch of the week has to go to the man simply known as John from Morecambe. John fished hoppers and damsels catch ten trout, his catch included rainbows up to 3lbs and a belting resident brownie of 13lbs. John also returned this fish, where it can continue to gorge on dace fry or anything else that takes its fancy. Good angling John.
The rod average over this period was 3.7 fish per angler. Tight Lines Ben
