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.

The last week made it in to our top 3 attendances of the season as anglers took advantage of the recent great fishing weather and enjoyed Toft during ‘primetime’.

In keeping with the general trend recently, imitative tactics reigned supreme again with a mixture of nymph and dry fly tactics accounting for probably 90% of the fish caught. Favourite patterns included both olive and black buzzers, crunchers, diawl bach, hares ear, shipmans, shuttlecocks and daddies. Its been great to see that our fish are really piling the weight on with the masses of natural food available, many anglers have reported catching several fine quality fish in the……….

98 rods caught 739 trout for a rod average of 7.54

A real bumper week again!

As we slip into May the season is well and truly in full swing and the fish obliging on the whole to the imitative approach employed by most of the anglers. Those that have fared best seemed to be the ones that could spot when to change depths, during brighter spells dropping deeper seemed to be a decent way to keep catching a few fish……..

123 Anglers caught 360 fish for a rod average of 2.92

A week started with some promise and good settled weather soon turned abit less consistent and tested the resolve of anglers to the limit. A stiff north easterly breeze and bright sunshine for the second half of the week did little to maintain last weeks incredible rod average and those that fished from boat whilst slightly less comfortable probably enjoyed the better sport…………….

Toft keeps giving at the moment and our excellent stock of fish have proved to be very cooperative indeed. At the risk of sounding like a broken record nothing much has changed in the way of tactics – it’s the time of year to generally adopt an imitative type of approach……………………………
