Have your say

Brian Richardson was the star angler of the week at Larkwood after taking home a rainbow trout of 12lb 3oz.

This was the biggest fish of a nine-fish bag, with others up to 4.5lb.

All of his fish were taken on black and red buzzer or red holographic diawl bach and were all taken in the top foot of water.

Other productive flies have been gold head damsel or very small cats whisker.

We have seen excellent evening rises in Glebe Lake with large hatches of buzzers bringing the fish to the surface.

Both West Stow and 
Glebe lakes are very clear, so fishing with a clear leader is essential.

There is no need to work hard — just cast out and let the wind push the line round and just hang on as the takes are savage.

Larkwood’s water craft courses popular at present and can now be tied in with a short introduction to fly 
casting as a taster — book

n Mark Neilson caught his first brown trout at Blackdyke Trout Fishery and being top rod with 15 fish to the net on a cold Tuesday.

Plenty of fish are topping all over the lake at the Hockwold venue and, with it being crystal clear, standing away from the edge is best so as not to spook them when they come very close in.
