Stocks and Bank House Fly Fishery get off to flying starts.

Bank House and Stocks Reservoir both had fantastic reopening days.
At Stocks we had 20 bank anglers over the day. The rod average was 9.82 fish per angler.
Derek Moore was top rod with over 27 trout from two trees. The best of which was a fin perfect rainbow of over 6lbs. Derek used a fast glass with candy Fabs and boobies.
Brian Lomax had 15 trout on black humongous he lost a big brownie as well.
The best bag of five weighed in tipped the scales to 12lbs 8oz and was caught by Alan Daniels from Bell Point. His bag was part of his eleven fish catch. We saw trout caught from the Dam and East bank too.
Paul Whitley had a prize tagged trout from Grindy’s Lawn. He Won 6 x 100m spools of fluorocarbon.
No boats went out today. The first are due to venture out of Friday. It will be single occupancy only unless the two anglers are from the same household.
I haven’t got exact figures for Bank House Fly Fishery as anglers couldn’t leave returns. (My bad) However I know it fished very well and there were some big fish caught.
Ricki Newbolt messaged me with his return. He caught 20+ fish. His best brown was a belter of 14lbs, his best rainbow was 12lbs, his best blue was 5lbs, he had two Spartics but he didn’t manage a tiger to complete the set. Good angling Ricki. Hopefully more returns will be posted my way.
I am happy to say social distancing was respected on both fisheries and there were no queues at all.
Stay safe and tight lines. Ben
