Paul nets catch of the week

Larkwood Trout Fishery had another good week, with the trout coming back up to just under the surface. The best method by far was to hang a damsel nymph 18 inches under a sight indicator.

Some large bags of fish were taken last week, with up to 12 to one angler.

The biggest fish of the week was a 6lb 4oz rainbow, which was caught by season permit holder Paul Smith, who also had more fish coming to a dry fly.

This week’s beginners all caught fish, and the club are now taking bookings for courses during February.

n Despite the conditions last week at Blackdyke Trout Fly Fishery, good catches prevailed.

Bart Farmer was top rod last Sunday for the week, with 15 fish taken on a variety of lures.

Floating lines are still favourite as the fish are not too deep and can still be seen rising. The water is very clear with fish being spotted close in.
