Weekly Report Week ending 9th May 2015
Despite two very windy days on Tuesday & Wednesday Thornton continues to enjoy a good spring with a rod average of 4.5 for the past week
Summer cant be too far off with the arrival of the swifts & the cuckoo this week. With the surface water temperature at 13 degrees we are seeing good buzzer hatches, much better hatches than last year with trout spooned feeding heavily on the buzzer although some have snail and damsel nymph.
The last four hour permit this week 4.45pm – 8.45pm is giving the angler the opportunity to enjoy our evening rise which again is far better than it was last year.
Trevor Pegg fished the washing line with buzzer & diawl bach to take his catch of 14fish up to 3lb2oz, Keith Coley recorded trout of 5lb2oz, 3lb9oz, Mick Glover caught 14 trout on a size 14 olive buzzer, Dennis Barnes fished a damsel to take a 4lb rainbow, Jamie Scott fished olive buzzer & black cruncher to catch 10 trout for his evening visit, Mark Hunt continued his good run of form fishing suspender buzzers with Alex Rankine finding an Olive Hopper worked best for him. Jeff Harrison caught the largest trout of his fishing career a 5lb rainbow, with Phil Mee also taking a 5lb rainbow in his excellent catch with a Rio midge tip the line working best for him
