Fishing report 17/1/22 – 23/1/22

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.

Andy is steadily adding a few new products back into the shop – the ever popular Vision Stillmaniac 10′ #7 is due back in stock in the next day or so and the Airflo Switch Black Reels are in stock as we speak. The range of fly tying equipment is also expanding at a slow rate but in time we hope to have a large amount of what you need.

Don’t forget that now is definitely the time to hone your skills, perhaps you would like to cast better or learn watercraft? would you like to learn how to fish from a boat? would you like to learn how to tie our favourite Toft flies? we can tailor tuition packages to suit you – for more information please call Andy in the fishery office on 01673 878453.

Finally for today we’ve also stocked with another 300 rainbows with an average size of 800g (though i have to say they looked bigger!) from Olsten Trout who continue to provide exceptional quality stock fish into Toft – please view the video and subscribe to our new YouTube channel – more content is on the way soon.

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.

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…….
