Weekly Report Week ending 17th May 2015

Another week when we experienced unseasonable strong winds, however on the days the weather forecast was kind for us we enjoyed excellent fishing with some great evening rise sport resulting in an overall rod average of 3.5 for the week.

Mark Hemmings fished the late evening session on Monday catching 9 on a blue damsel returning on Sunday morning to catch another 8 again on the blue damsel, Richard Dayman recorded fish up to 4lb for his morning session with Norman Perkins also taking fish up to 4lb4oz, Trevor Pegg fished the washing line to take his catch of 19 trout, with Mick Glover using shipmans buzzer to great effect, Mick Cross also recorded fish of 4lb+

A number of anglers reported great sport to fish chasing a muddler through the wave on the overcast days with a few anglers reporting some hawthorn on the water along the stones with a black hopper working well for them.

Best flies, dries, suspender buzzer, shipmans, damsel, muddler with the main basin, stones and corner of the wood
