Fishing Report and News 9/5/22 – 15/5/22

100 rods caught a total of 638 trout for a rod average of 6.38

Some heavy rain in the middle of last week kept a few anglers away dashing our hopes of an attendance similar to the previous week – that said we still enjoyed a decent steady turnout, we just love you to take full advantage whilst the fishing is so good.

It has been great to be out on the bank teaching several newbies over the last week, our featured picture shows Neil with his first rainbow on the fly at Toft, a daddy longlegs pattern doing the damage, he also managed another fish plus several bits of interest and missed takes throughout the day.

We’ve added another stocking of fish this morning, over 200 rainbows delivered to us by Olsten Trout, as always they are fabulous quality and should help to maintain our current excellent rod averages.

The coming few weeks should see much of the same in terms of tactics. Of late, nymph, dry fly and buzzers tactics have been particularly hard to beat. Getting the depth right is absolutely critical in being successful and its worth searching the layers particularly on brighter days.
For anglers that like to take a fish or two for the table its always worth using the marrow spoon to establish just what the fish may be eating, recently we’ve had big hatches of buzzers, quite a few daddy longlegs and its also been noted that Toft also has a heck of a lot of shrimp – there’s no wonder the fish are piling on so much weight!

Now that we’re in our busy season there are times when we might be out of the office for a little longer than usual anglers wishing to book boats are advised to book through the website

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………

81 rods caught 261 trout for a rod average of 3.19

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…………

100 rods caught 374 trout for a rod average of 3.74

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…….

Nice steady sport is perhaps the best way to describe the last week, that said its fair to say its that time of year when we need to apply ourselves just a little more and on the whole do things a little ‘better’………………

73 rods caught 383 trout for a rod average of 5.24.

Firstly my apologies for a few less updates over the last week or so as I’ve been catching up on some annual leave.

Its great to come back and catch up on the recent form at Toft and here angling tales and experiences from several of you whom have been out just lately. One of the stand out highlights of the season so far surely has to be the amount of great weather we have had and so many days that have offered us very good fishing conditions indeed – in actual fact I’ve attached a screenshot of the forecast for the next 3 days and…………
