In truth we were probably always going to get a slightly slower week with so much bad windy weather – it can make casting and controlling he equipment a lot harder work than we would like it to be – but understandable too.
As you would expect during times of inclement weather most anglers headed for the upwind and most sheltered areas of the lake and employed more or less the same tactics as in recent weeks with the washing line reigning supreme and a slow intermediate line a great option for trying to get under the surface drift and stay in contact with the flies. as an alternative option the usual array of early season lures such as Humungus, Concrete Bowl, Cats Whisker and Viva fished on intermediate lines will provide a worthy standby option – as always play about with the retrieves and depths until you find something that works.
a nice moment for us all at Toft this week was to see us in ‘Trout and Salmon’ magazine following a visit they’d made to us on possibly the coldest day we have had this winter. It’s great to see Toft portrayed in a wonderful light and we look forward to welcoming them back hopefully in the future to offer more quality content. It was also nice to pick up a couple of copies from the newsagents and sit and read some ‘non digital’ articles for a change.
The coming week should see similar tactics required to tempt Tofts fish and as I write (7/2/22) we’re waiting for another delivery today of stock fish from our suppliers Olsten Trout – no doubt they will be quickly settled in and putting smiles on your faces before we know it. as always you can either purchase your fishing tickets on the day r by clicking the booking button at the top of the page.
See you soon folks!
