Back in the flow of it as Rocklands Mere

The cold snap put paid to any fishing at Rocklands Mere until Saturday, when the lake was finally ice-free.
Member Jon Brooks defied all logic and had the best session, with five rainbows in just a couple of hours in the evening on buzzers fished on a floating line and just inches under the surface. Andy Morgan from Narborough caught three on various lures a little deeper and on Sunday, Jimmy Sayer landed four on a home tied Damsel Nymph. Newcomer Mary Taylor banked four rainbows on various nymphs.
The fish have been rising freely to sporadic buzzer hatches in the afternoons and although few and far between, it's looking promising for Spring. Sinking lines and lures or heavy nymphs should still have the edge on other tactics or flies, but with the weather warming up don't discount buzzers or small nymphs fished just under the surface.
