55 rods caught 482 trout for a rod average of 8.76.
Its still exceptional sport though the weather seemed to keep a few of you at home meaning we didn’t manage to replicate the terrific attendance of the previous week – in truth aside from a couple of decent showers it really wasn’t as bad as the forecast would have you believing – they’ve certainly got a lot to answer for.
Fish seemed to move up and down through the layers a little and those fishing subsurface are advised to keep swapping the point fly between a Buzzer or a small Booby or FAB to stay in touch with the feeding depth – this means you can chop and change between straight line nymphing or washing line tactics very easily indeed. Some fish are still happy to chase moved flies and the usual white and green, black and green or olive based lures are great options to pick from.
Season ticket holders John wood and Dave McGeever enjoyed a day afloat with a great number of fish falling to dries – a small ‘Shuck’ fly doing the damage for them. It was really nice to welcome another newcomer Mark Sharples in the better weather at the start of last week – he managed his first fish during a lesson and he’s back later today to get kitted out with some great quality kit.
We also stocked again on Thursday with 235 fine quality rainbows from Olsten Trout, it has really been great to get so many compliments of late about the sheer strength of the fish in Toft.
As the season and longer daylight hours continue Tofts opening hours will adjust accordingly. Our current opening hours are as follows:
(BOATS IN 30 MINS BEFORE CLOSING PLEASE)
In the not too distant future we should all be enjoying fantastic evening sport – make sure you’re here to enjoy it with us.
We look forward to seeing you all soon.
