Weekly Report Week ending 22nd March 2015

Fishing continues to improve with 102 rods last week catching 678 trout for a rod average 6.6 with boat and bank anglers enjoying the good sport.

Last week I reported that the Mallard & Claret had worked for one bank angler, this week Simon Giles used another old traditional wet fly pattern the KeHe to take 4 trout from the bank.

Other fly patterns working this week, Damsel, cats whisker, Hares Ear, apps bloodworm & buzzer fished on either a floating or intermediate line

Best areas, Thornton arm opposite the lodge, wood bank, lonesome pine with most of the trout taken within 15 yds of the bank.

Royal Oak Fly Fishers fished one of their club matches at Thornton on Sunday returning a rod average 7.6 for their match with the eventual winner Frank Parker with 8 fish for 19lb

With the first of the sand martins passing through last week the warmer weather won’t be too far behind, spooning fish over the weekend they are currently feeding hard on tiny black buzzers with some bloodworm
