Great average size coming out of Thornton this past fortnight with anglers committing on the quality, most of the fish coming to the scales have weighed between 2lb – 4lb
Morning session is still producing best as our late evening buzzer hatches continue to be well below what we would expect during a normal year.
Yet more rain this past week but our water clarity remains good to excellent and unsurprising considering the cooler temperatures.
Floating and intermediate lines with damsel, orange fritz & buzzer have caught best with the Markfield arm, corner of the wood and farm bank producing best although in a northerly or westerly wind the car park area has produced some excellent catches
Terry Barton fished a morning session fishing buzzers on a washing line to catch 9, Tony Lorrimer caught 21 for his day while Dave Pacey recorded 16, Keith Coley and John Bebbington recorded 22, Gordon Porter fished a morning session catching 7 on a corixa pattern and blob while Mark Sturgess caught 12 to 5lb8oz, Richard Dayman caught 6 trout for a total bag weight of 17lb5oz.
Morning session has fished best during last week.
