Larger fish have been showing again at Larkwood this week with a cracking six-pounder, caught by season ticket holder Brian Spinga.

This was included in a nice bag of fish taken on marabou damsels.

Fishing generally has been inconsistent with fish migrating from the surface to the lake bed and back again.

Jeff Pepper took advantage of the surface activity to catch 12 rainbows on a hopper and merger.

Fishing is set to pick up with the more settled weather and another delivery of top quality rainbows from West Acre.

n Sport is getting better and better at Blackdyke Trout Fishery.

The top rod at the weekend was Darren Lee who caught 12 fish, two of which weighed more than five pounds.

Damsel nymphs, buzzer and olive crunchers on floating lines were the best flys.

Lots of daddies about and hopefully the trout will turn their attention to feeding on them soon.
