With the weather becoming ever so slightly more consistent and temperatures steadily increasing to ‘comfortable’ its really a great time to be at Toft.
A steady rod average of around 6 of late and some fantastic quality hard fighting fish has really kept our anglers entertained. As with any water, you do have to get it ‘right’, with buzzers hatching in profusion the best sport is to be had using teams of buzzers and nymphs sometimes with a small FAB or booby on the point to search the layers more slowly.
Floaters and the various permutations of ‘midge tip’ line have been the most successful and anglers are encouraged to keep altering depths until they find the most successful on the day.
were often asked about an easy to manage leader setup when fishing teams of flies at Toft, a leader of around 15′ overall will suffice in many instances with the flies spaced at 5′ intervals i.e a point fly and then 2 droppers 5′ and 10′ from the point, this should get you started. during spells of rising fish its also worth a change to dries and a small shuttlecock cdc has been a great pattern of late. Anglers looking to be more successful at nymph fishing and using teams of flies may wish to consider booking a lesson, for more details call Andy in the fishing lodge on 01673 878453
