19th May 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 19th May 2019

Some lovely weather at the beginning of the weekled to some cracking eveningrises with fish topping on both lakes, Dries and Buzzers are still accounting for most fish with small nymphs and various lures also producing some good bag numbers. Anglers have been reporting some excellent fighting fish, and a few lucky anglers safely returning fish into the double figures from both lakes. Thrunton held its annual Breast Cancer Competition on Saturday, where 23 anglers fished a friendly competition helping to raise money for this excellent charity. We expect to of raised over £1000, which is an amazing achievement. We would like to thank everyone who has fished the competition and donated money, prizes or bought raffle tickets, as it would not be possible without everyone partaking. Congratulations to John Pringle who took first prize, second place and Heaviest fish went to Jaime Scott, and finally well done to Michael Watson on taking third place.
