Latest Form – Time to go Nymphing!

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

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………

81 rods caught 261 trout for a rod average of 3.19

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…………

100 rods caught 374 trout for a rod average of 3.74

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…….

Firstly my apologies for a few less updates over the last week or so as I’ve been catching up on some annual leave.

Its great to come back and catch up on the recent form at Toft and here angling tales and experiences from several of you whom have been out just lately. One of the stand out highlights of the season so far surely has to be the amount of great weather we have had and so many days that have offered us very good fishing conditions indeed – in actual fact I’ve attached a screenshot of the forecast for the next 3 days and…………
