Commercial Fisheries are coming alive now
Blackdyke Well done Trevor Seaman for another fine catch on Sunday morning using small gold head damsel being the killer pattern. Top rod this week goes to Malcolm Foreman with 23 fish returned to a team of buzzers on Saturday. With the occasional sunny warm day drys have been working well with small black beetle patterns and klinkhammers also taking rising fish.
On Sunday, May 19 there will be an open competition. It's £10 to enter with cash prizes for the top three and for the heaviest fish. Call to book your place on 07525 730447.
Larkwood Fishing at Larkwood is remaining consistent with lots more large fish, into double figures being taken this week. The three best fist were all in the 12-13lb weight and were caught by Chris Cullen, Fred Freeman and Graham Limer. All the large fish were taken on small imitative patterns such as buzzers or diawl bach. The fish have been deeper down in the mornings and coming up in the afternoon.
Both West Stow and Glebe lakes are very clear. Looking forwards we should start to see hatches of damsels and hawthorns.
Nar Valley It has been a busy week at RMF, no doubt thanks to the beautiful sunny weather. Afternoon rises have been a daily occurrence and buzzer hatches are prevalent. Paul Chipperfield, from Norwich, had a great day on Friday afternoon, landing 15 rainbows in total. Paul was using a floating line with a small foam black beetle on the surface and buzzers fished subsurface. On Saturday, Chris Bonner from Attleborough, took advantage of the afternoon buzzer hatch and banked eight rainbows. A special mention to Miles Contreras Brown, from Great Hockham, who had his first fly casting lesson on Sunday. Fourteen-year-old Miles took to it like a duck to water and caught three rainbows on a small olive buzzer. For more information or to book a lesson call 01953 483971.
