Fishing Report and News 6/6/22 – 12/6/22

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.

In keeping with recent weeks Tofts fish have continued to feed on the diverse larder of food available to them – this in turn means that they’re putting on weight for fun and they’re in the very best of condition. I even managed one myself that took over 50 yards of backing – it really must have been laughing at me!

In terms of fly patterns theres not really too much different to tell you – at times I wish there was but in reality I could possibly get through a full season at Toft with around only 20 patterns. The Yellow Owl and Hares Ear combination have continued to take fish but realistically as long as its following those sort of guidelines and cast accurately in front of cruising fish you’ll more than likely catch some of them.

Occasionally I join in!

During a brighter spell on Sunday, Neil Deakin took to a boat and landed a good number of fish using snakes and sunk line tactics – there are definitely a few fish out in the deeper water again.

We added another stocking of fish on 10/6/22 which included a smattering of bigger fish upto around 5lb – these will soon settle down and offer great sport over the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you soon to enjoy some more fabulous sport.

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…………
