Fly Fishing: Curtis sets new record at Rocklands with trout
Blackdyke – Please can we have some settled weather here at Blackdyke. Be prepared to change tactics – buzzers are still working well in calm conditions under an indicator or a slow figure of eight retrieve. Damsels and montanas should be employed when it's rough still on floating lines pulled slow. A date for your diary is Sunday, June 10 – come along and have a go at float tubing. Call 07525730447 for more details.
Rocklands Mere Fishery – The fishing this week has been fantastic despite the weather. RMF is pleased to announce that a new lake record Rainbow trout was caught last Thursday weighing 12lb. Pat Curtis from Poringland hooked the fish at the north end of the lake and after a 20 minute battle was cradling the magnificant specimen in the water. Pat was using a floating line and damsel nymph fished just below the surface. The fish was returned to fight another day. With more unsettled weather predicted this week it is always worth ensuring your dry flies are never far away, as cdc buzzers, klinkhammers and small black gnats or griffiths gnats will always take fish during warmer spells. The fishery will be closed for the day on Sunday, April 29 due to a corporate booking. For more information call 01953 483971
