15th Dec 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 15th December 2019

Some cracking bag numbers and some decent sized fish this week, have kept the anglers persisting through the cold weather. Lures have taken most of the fish this week, however a few anglers have picked some fish up on small naturals. Anglers have been rewarded with some lovely fish in the 6-7lb region, which given the time of year have certainly been putting up a good scarp. The North East Ladies Angling Group, visited Thruton on Saturday for their final outing before Christmas, the warm fire kept of few of the women sheltering inside from the bitterly cold winds. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Tight lines for 2020, from all at Thrunton Long Crag Team.
