19th Nov 2017 - Fishing Report w/e 19th November 2017

A week of cold stiff breezes and flat calm periods has made it quite a challenge for anglers at times. On the calmer days fish were ‘topping’ all over the place, taking small black flies. Lures continue to do well also naturals taking their fair share of fish. The Thrunton Juniors thoroughly enjoyed the Fly Fishing Masterclass by Howard Croston on Saturday , learning so many hints and tips! The session was made even more special by both the 2 youngest members of the group Merryn Bell and Joseph Graham catching their first fish on a fly – well done! A huge thank you to Howard for coming along and inspiring these youngsters and thank you to Lucy Bowden and her dad Chris, the session proved very popular so their help was much appreciated.Fish of the week was landed by Jim Lumsden of Cramlington, a 12lb 8oz brown, his personal best brown
