Catching Hard in Calm Water

Trout And ABOUT

CLEATHAM TROUT: Good fish to Daddies, Cul de Canard and other dry flies. The flat calm of Sunday made for hard-to-catch fish as presentation meant a cast which flew over the water before landing lightly.

THORPE VALE TROUT: Daddies, Hoppers, Cul de Canard, Black Shipmans and Williams Favourite have all accounted for good fish on both lakes. No 1 lake required fishing down wind along the bankside at times so as not to spook the fish. No 2 lake produced to the same flies on a long leader and allowed to drift in the wind.

TOFT NEWTON TROUT: Last week, 106 anglers caught 538 fish for a rod average of 5.08. Lots of good sport on dries. Hoppers, sedges, black & peacocks and CDC buzzer patterns all good. Plenty of fish around the blue buoy area. Drifting boats are best, fishing traditional teams of three patterns, loch style. Try a Grenadier or Bibio on the bob, a Dunkeld on the middle and a cruncher or PTN on the point.

Top catch goes to Trev Ward from Dinnington with 26 fish to the boat, fishing a variety of his own killing 'top of the water' patterns. These patterns are not those created by Scouse legend Peter Cowan as previously mentioned !!

Plenty of rainbows and browns around the 3Ib-plus mark, with the best fish weighing 4Ib 12oz to Lawson Bedford taken on a Bibio.

All rowing boats just a fiver throughout September. A limited number of Scierra IC3 7/8 reels on offer at Toft - reduced to pounds30.
