Colin includes personal best on his way to maximum
Blackdyke trout fishery: Last week saw the first trout of the season to take a fly off the surface. Alex Stewart, fishing tight to the reeds, tempted three fish to take a Kate Maclaren - a wet fly that would not sink.
Blackdyke trout fishery: Last week saw the first trout of the season to take a fly off the surface. Alex Stewart, fishing tight to the reeds, tempted three fish to take a Kate Maclaren - a wet fly that would not sink. It was nice to see the fish rise and take the fly. Colin Twaite had his best day, catching a personal best rainbow of 3lb 8oz on a bloody butcher and going on to catch his limit. With the warmer weather the fish are moving up in the water with floating lines being the order of the day.
Willow trout fishery: It was a good week with everyone getting their limits. Conditions have been as near perfect as you can get for this time of year. The fish are also in good condition with quite a high average weight. Best flies have been dawl bachs, cats whiskers and any dark fly with a marabou tail. The prospects are looking good.
Rocklands mere: Stalham angler Geoff Peek took 12 fish from the far bank using a floating line and a damsel fished with a slow retrieve. Paul Roberts and Chris Efstratiou took 32 fish between them. Chris used a olive gold head while Paul used a small fry pattern. Saturday will see Rocklands mere's big fish day - for more details contact James on 07900 004953.
Larkwood trout fishery: The rod average has risen to 3.8 fish per angler. The fish have desended in the water any where from 7 to 12 feet down. Gareth Bolitho took a rainbow that tipped the scale at 10lb 12oz. Black tadpoles or small black buzzer have been the favourite fly of the week. The lakes are still very clear.

South Elmham trout fishery: There have been several good sized brown trout taken. The best being 7lb to Mr Dewson on his first visit. Ken Pack also took a cracking rainbow of 6�lb. The fish are still deep - a fluorescent pink humungus took some of the bigger fish.
Narborough trout lakes: Damsels has been the favourite fly over the past week accounting for most fish caught. The cold water has seen the fish deeper. Most anglers are taking two fish but some are taking their limits.
