Fishing report 24th-30th January 2022

40 anglers managed a total of 316 trout of which 15 were killed.

Its certainly just a tad draughty as I write this morning though the more settled weather earlier in the week certainly meant we’ve enjoyed some really good sport. With not a lot to pick between the boats and bank over the last week there’s been something for everyone and its been great to see plenty of rods bending – predominantly in the south west corner for bank anglers and all over the lake for those in boats……..

In terms of tactics very little has changed from the last couple of weeks with washing line tactics proving dominant in anglers reports and also the usual early season lures finding their share for those who find sitting still a touch tricky.

Fly fishing newbie Ian Dales (pictured) joined us for a days tuition and got off to a cracking start to his fly fishing career managing to land 1 fish for his tea and losing another as it neared the net, there’s no doubt in my mind that Ian will be returning and he’s done the right thing by choosing to start learning with the goal of being proficient before the best fishing of the year arrives in the spring.

With back to back storms currently passing through and some very windy weather at present its doubtful that there will be much boat fishing taking place this week – as always please give us a ring to check the current state of play and well be able to advise the situation with the boats.

This weeks best tip would be to keep an eye on conditions and alter your setup accordingly – for instance in the windy weather a floating line may be dragged around by the wind a little too quickly – a change to one of the slow intermediates will keep you in contact with the flies and the fish and help you to put more on the bank. as always anglers can either pay for their fishing in the lodge or by clicking our booking link and purchasing tickets in advance.

See you soon folks!

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…….
