Larkwood season ticket holder Brian Hobbs took the best-looking fish of the week with a superb full-tailed rainbow trout of just over 5lb.

This was taken on a small Marabou Damsel, which has proved to be the best fly of the week, fished about a foot below the surface, with a slow retrieve.

Richard Holgate had a great second visit with nine fish to 3.5lb, taken on yellow buzzers and emergers, fished in the surface film.

n Larkwood gift vouchers are available for day permits and fly fishing tuition from Ian on 07776 370348.

n Plenty of fish were caught at Blackdyke this week, with floating lines, 12ft leaders, damsel nymphs and yellow dancers working best.

Rolli Gossi had a great visit on Sunday, catching several fish over the 5lb-mark, which he returned, topping it off with a 7lb 4oz rainbow, which was entered into the trout masters competition.

Blackdyke will be closed from December 24-26, as well as New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
