Fishing Report and News 4/4/22-10/4/22

75 anglers caught 493 trout (67 killed) for a rod average of 6.57

Windy weather made for a slightly quieter week than we would have liked, the fishing however remained fabulous as Tofts trout gorged on the massive profusion of buzzers throughout the levels of the water column. Both black and olive buzzer imitations played a big part in catches and as lots of quality trout made their way to the landing nets of our anglers.

We spooned several fish this week to help us to ‘match the hatch’ and you can see from the pictures that they were certainly feeding very well indeed – the majority of the sport has been with floating lines and imitative types of flies – the real ‘cream’ of the seasons fishing – its literally buzzer soup out there!

In terms of the finer points tactically, teams of flies are certainly proving productive, buzzer patterns ‘straight lined’ and STATIC are certainly the way forward, on days when the fish are a little higher up changing the point fly to a small booby will keep the flies in the upper layers for longer meaning that you will be showing your flies to more fish for a longer period of time. We’ve been lucky to see lots of fish rising this week and suspender buzzer patterns, shuttlecock cdc and foam daddy longlegs have all fetched fish to the net, again crucially fishing ultra slow or static would appear to be the key to success.

On Saturday we had a group from Donington Angling Club near Boston to have their first Flyfishing lesson, its safe to say that they had a great time and caught some fish too, we even managed a short video of Phil landing his first fish on a dry fly ably assisted by club chairman Paul Slater who leant a hand with the net.

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…………

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…….
