24th Mar 2019 - Fishing Report w/e 24th March 2019

Milder weather and some slightly more settled conditions, has resulted in some excellent bags being recorded here at Thrunton this week. At the beginning part of the week we saw some very impressive hatches, where size proved to be key when matching the hatch. However when the wind increased, fish would move to feeding sub surface on Buzzer’s, Spiders and Small Nymphs. CDC’s and Black Gnats accounted for the majority of the fish caught on the surface this week. This week we held our Trout Master Fish off, it was a 6 hour competition on Coe Crag. 10 anglers fished, 2 of which were fishing in the junior section attempting to qualify allowing them to fish the Junior Trout Masters UK final here at Thruton in July. 64 fish were caught making a rod average of 6.4. A big well done goes to Phil Green who qualified for the seniors, and also to Ryan Foggon who will be fishing for Thrunton during the Junior Final. Thank you to our marshals; Jim Foggon and Andrew Lister for helping on the day. Members of the North East Ladies angling club, visited Thrunton on Sunday all thoroughly enjoying their fishing session.
