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!
