Gold lures best fish

LARKWOOD: The cold strong wind this week has pushed the fish deeper, so the best method is a slow retrieve with a small lure on an intermediate line.

The most productive flies have been Marabou Damsel and, strangely, Gold Head May Fly Nymph – which took the biggest fish this week of 9lb 3oz.

Glebe Lake has fished the best this week, with the fish being in the down-wind corners. Both lakes are still very clear.

The response to our December tuition days has been excellent – there are a few places left so ring soon to avoid disappointment, on 07776 370348.

BLACKDYKE: The trout fishery had another good week, with lots of anglers on the bank.

Regular restocking is keeping plenty of fresh stockys eager to take a fly – cats whiskers, damsels and apps bloodworm being most successful.
