Thornton Weekly update week ending 20h October

Typical autumn weather kept rods away some days of last week, but when the weather allowed there were some great catches mainly taken from the weed beds using floating lines with fry patterns.

We had 23 trout over 5lb recorded last week with Clive Cattell taking 8 fish for a total weight of over 41lb

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
