Fishing Report and News 30/5/22 – 5/6/22

112 rods caught a total of 492 trout for a rod average of 4.39

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’

A slightly more refined and considered approach is required and those prepared to scale down line and leader size certainly found the pick of the spoils. With such a diverse range of fly life around the fish are feeding well and at times extremely close to the bank, those choosing to stay on dry land fared better than those who went afloat – possibly the opposite of what might be considered normal for this time of year. On the business end of things small cdc shuttlecock emergers in a size 14 and a small hares ear in a size 16 took many fish though in truth any slight variants should do the trick provided they’re the right size.

Accurate casting has played a big part in a successful approach, the ability to put the flies just 2-3 feet in front of a moving fish will pay dividends and earn you more takes – doing all of the basics well will increase your chances of having a great day, make sure the end of your floating line isn’t sinking so that you’ve got the best contact with your flies and can lift off to re cast both quicker and with less disturbance.

We have another stocking of fish due from Olsten Trout this Friday 10/6/22 and these should offer more great sport into next week.

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………

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…….
