Phil Moore caught 10 trout including a brown of 3lb2oz and a rainbow of 6lb6oz, Jim Everitt also caught a brown of 4lb
Although most of the trout are falling to fry patterns Mark Hunt caught 4 trout the smallest 3lb and the largest 5lb13oz on a cruncher .
Stuart Thompson put his chest waders on to help him get over the weed and was rewarded with 2 fish from the bank
