50 anglers caught a total of 241 trout (32 killed) for a rod average of 4.82.
Similar tactics to last week fetched great results again with a distinct pattern emerging which may help some anglers to be consistent during future visits to Toft.
In the main anglers fishing either washing line tactics on floating lines or lure patterns on intermediates enjoyed the best of the sport though one very interesting addition is that we have noticed that there are still a great number of fish in deeper water and the boats have enjoyed some fine sport with booby and other lure patterns deep down on Di-5 type lines.
During the breezier spells the bank seems to fish very well indeed with the fish retreating slightly on calmer days – when the conditions are like this hiring a boat can really change your day. Whilst being on the water can be cold at this time of year it can also be very rewarding, fleece type clothing with waterproof outer layers will help to keep you warm. A warm hat and warm socks are really essential pieces of kit and a flask with a warm drink a welcome bonus.
