Thornton weekly report week ending 24/09/2012

A better week for us with the rod average at 2.0 as 109 rods caught 219 trout for the week

Harold Chapman won the Thornton Fly Fishers senior competition fished during the morning session, Harold caught 4 fish on a floating line and buzzers.

Brian Fox is the man in form fishing twice last week catching 10 trout on buzzers during his first visit & 11 on his second visit, his catches included fish of 3lb8oz & a superbly conditioned rainbow of 6lb8oz

Tony Lorrimer fished his bunny leeches to deadly effect recording 13 trout to 4lb

The weather on Sunday took a turn for the worst a biting cold easterly & rain, however Mark Goode & Fred Kettle despite the conditions enjoyed an excellent day catching 6 trout to 3lb14oz & 4 trout to 4lb12oz with the majority taking a small hot spot nymph

For most of the week damsel variants, buzzer, daddy & cruncher produced best with a few trout starting to come to minkie patterns, I would expect the fry patterns to start taking more & more fish as we leave September & move into October
