Michael Low won the World Bank Masters heat at Blackdyke Trout Fishery after landing 10 fish for 16 points on Saturday.

Second was a consistent Steve Cullen, catching six from six, with lunchtime leader Bart Farmer third, Kevin knights fourth and Charlie Ratchford fifth.

The next heat at the Hockwold venue is on Saturday, March 8.

n Larkwood Trout Fishery saw much better results this week with the water clarity of both West Stow and Glebe lakes being back to normal.

The milder weather has also bought the fish back to near the surface.

The best fly this week without a doubt has been the 
marabou damsel.

Fished on a floating line with a slow retrieve, takes are very positive so a 7-8lb fluorocarbon is recommended.

Other great flies have included black buzzer or diawl bach.

The most notable catch of the week by far was by Gary Smith, who had 17 fish including rainbows up to 7.5lb and brownies to 5lb.

Lots of fish are coming out in the 3-5lb range.

In another few weeks, Larkwood should see larger hatches of buzzers, after dry fly probably the most exciting type of fly fishing and a great favourite at Larkwood.
