Toft Newton Fur and Feather Results 06/12/20

A great day today at Toft with a total of 32 anglers fishing – of which 26 had decided to come and partake in our annual Fur and Feather friendly competition.

We decided this season to run a different format and anglers essentially today just had to enjoy a days sport and select 2 fish throughout the day for the weigh in at the end – a big change from the usual 6 fish bag and time bonus as we often see – the idea being that nobody could run away with it early on and test anglers decision making skills on which fish to retain for the scales.

Whilst the day proved to be tough given cold overnight temperatures, bright skies and gin clear water, everyone enjoyed a friendly atmosphere and some fish were caught to add to the occasion. Craig Barr showed his class by netting 14 fish throughout the day, a real achievement in the conditions, sadly for Craig no real monsters came to the net but he certainly showed why he’s amongst the best the UK has to offer, well done for sticking at it. Matt Nuttall also had a good day netting 8 but again no real bruisers in the net to put him in the prizes.

In 3rd place today and much to his surprise was Guide Flyfishing marketing man Warren Langridge with 2 fish on the scales for 1.852kg. Warren took away £50 cash as his prize and a pick at the prize table. In 2nd place was Toft regular Mark Bryan weighing in a single fish for 2.514kg, he took away £80 for his trouble and well deserved for sticking at it. In first place and this years Fur and Feather winner was Hull angler Adam Hirst weighing in a fine rainbow of 2.936kg – Adam won £130 cash so a good bit more than ‘bus fare home’ congratulations Adam on the result.

We’d like to express a massive vote of thanks to Martin Rowson for fetching 20 brace of pheasants as he so often does and as always a big thanks to all of the anglers for fetching a table full of prizes to make sure that nobody left empty handed at the end of the day. As always we couldn’t do it without your support and Toft continues to go from strength to strength following substantial investment over the last 12 months. As always Thankyou all for the banter, company, laughs and smiles, it’s a pleasure to host you as always. We look forward to bringing a lot more exciting news soon – watch this space.

In terms of tactics it was pretty much of a muchness as is often the case at Toft, being a relatively shallow lake its possible to catch fish pretty close to or on the surface for most of the year and last week was no exception. Washing line tactics with a small Tequila FAB on the point and Red Head Diawl Bach’s on the droppers proved as ever deadly………

A real mixed bag of a week weather wise certainly hasn’t made it easy for us. As I write (22/6/22) it would appear that the hot weather has kept one or two of you away, perhaps jobs in the garden or a visit to The Lincolnshire Show have been high on the agenda – I must admit a sun lounger and some very cold cider do have a certain appeal attached to them…………

During spells of variable weather being adaptable is the key to success. In the brighter periods fishing a touch deeper from the boats found good sport though bank anglers can still catch more than their share by fishing smaller dries and nymphs close in – the key quite often is to ‘stick at it’, too many times lately were seeing anglers casting 20 yards when realistically shorter casts of 5-7 yards would put them in front of fish and offer better presentation…….
