8th Oct 2017 - Fishing Report w/e 8th October 2017

Strong winds earlier in the week made fishing more challenging for some anglers but those that handled the conditions had great sport. Anglers have reported good bags this week with fry patterns working particularly well but dries and buzzers are still proving productive with good top of the water sport. We welcomed the Morpeth Chantry Trout Ticklers this weekend with all the children enjoying their mornings instruction. Many thanks to Barry Mitchell, Sid Dixie, Bob Crook and Lance Burton. Duncan Passmore lost his cap twice into the lakes with the strong winds and while casting to retrieve it landed fish on both occasions before successfully hooking his cap. We also welcomed Trout Fisherman magazine with James Stokoe and Connor Metcalf preparing an article for November’s issue. The weather and the fishing could not have been better.
