Thornton Weekly update week ending 22nd September
A great end to the week, glorious weather, lots of daddies, buzzer and sedge on the water providing great dry fly sport. We are experiencing some of the best daddy fishing in years
Mark Goode who does a great deal of work supporting the Leicestershire Disabled angling club bought a small group of anglers to Thornton on Sunday with Mark fishing a daddy to catch 17 trout including a 4lb brown.
Junior angler Tom Gamble fished from his float tube to catch 7 trout including 5 brown with the biggest weighing 4lb. Mr Walklate fished an afternoon session using a deer hair sedge to catch 8 trout to 3lb, Mark Hunt fished a morning session catching 6 fish including two over 4lb on diwal bach and buzzer. Good old traditional wet fly the Kate McLaren caught 16 trout including a 4lb brown for Alex Rankin. Tony Lorrimer caught 10 trout for his visit while Clive Holt fished a late evening session taking 5 trout to 5lb2oz
The majority of the trout are still out over the deeper water but with the cooler nights it won’t be long before they start moving into the arms. This past week daddies and hoppers reigned supreme but a few trout did fall to white boobies on a washing lines, these trout were already feeding hard on the fry.
The autumn great time to be out on the midland reservoirs
Our last four hours fishing 1 fish kill + Catch & Release £10 and a rowing boat £4.00 offers great value.
