Try your hand at float tubing

THIS was a week of two halves at Larkwood, with fishing excellent early in the week – taking small black dries on the surface.

From Thursday onwards, with the hot temperature and bright sunshine, the fish went down to around 10 feet, with small gold head nymphs the best bet.

Glebe Lake is still gin clear, so for best results the angler will need to use a fine leader.

The most notable bag was a four fish limit of 17.5lb by visiting angler Graham Woodward. This was part of his 12-fish catch.

Our Fishing For Heroes Day, on June 10, is fully booked and the club has already received many kind donations for the charity, and is on course to beat last year’s total.

To donate, contact Ian on 07776 370348.

n DRIES and buzzers are still catching well at Blackdyke Trout Fishery. Daddies, hawthorns, sedges and mayfly patterns are the most successful, black buzzers also accounting for plenty of takes.
