Damsel does the trick at East Tuddenham

Norfolk & Suffolk Flyfishers at East Tuddenham obviously lost a few days fishing last week – the lakes were frozen but Monday saw some 'hardies' back on the bank as soon as the thaw set in.
First to catch was D Shipp from Watton who struggled to start with off the point on the lower lake, tempting only one fish before deciding to fish in front of the Memorial benches and soon latched into some really decent fish.
Yet again it was the Damsel nymph that brought his limit bag to the net.
Looking back over the last nine months this has been by far the most successful fly, as nymphs are normally active all year round and represent a good 'mouthful' to the hungry fish.
Normally tied on a size 10 or 12, green or olive has outperformed all other colours.

If they don't bring a fish to the net fairly quickly, a change to white, say a Cats Whisker, normally gets them pulling your string.
