18th Oct 2020 - Fishing Report w/e 18th October 2020

Overall, this week we've seen some very impressive bag numbers and some cracking fish caught. As the fish continue to chase the sticklebacks, any fry patters have been fairly productive. The fish are still being caught in the top few feet of water, and on the odd occasion throughout the day following a hatch of flies, the fish have been feeding on the surface. Mini Cats Whiskers and Apps Bloodworms have been the most productive flies this week.
We are featured in The Trout & Salmon magazine this month, a fantastic 6 page article written by Peter Cockwill, following his visit earlier in the year. It's well worth a read, November Issue.
We hosted The TEFF Puddle Pairs fundraiser on Sunday, where 20 anglers helped to raise money for the England Bank Team. The cold and very calm conditions made the fishing challenging at times, however those anglers who 'dug deep' were rewarded. Well done at all the qualifiers, and a big thanks to everyone for turning up, and to Lee Cartmail for organising the event.
