20th May 2018 - Fishing Report w/e 20th May 2018

The warm weather continued this week with some great fly life on the water. Anglers have consistently ‘matched the hatch’ resulting in some great bags of fish. Small and black has continued to be very successful but generally it has been ideal dry fly conditions resulting in some fantastic top of the water sport! We welcomed the Oddfellows angling group from Alnwick who had an excellent day despite the bright conditions catching on buzzers, blobs and CDCs. The winner was Jamie Scott with a 3 fish bag for 8lb 11oz. We also welcomed the Conservative Club from Morpeth who enjoyed their Club outing.
