It’s hoped Brownies will benefit

Blackdyke trout fishery 07525730447. Last week saw the introduction of some sizeable brown trout with an average weight of 5lb-plus. It is hoped that the brownies will grow over winter into speciman size fish. All brown trout must be returned. Best flies have been lures, dries and buzzers accounting for nearly all the fish caught over the last week. Blackdyke will be celebrating its second anniversary this Saturday with Tim Gaunt-Baker on hand to help you with all your casting. Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last two years.

Willow trout fishery 01986 785392. The windy and unsettled conditions have made the fishing slightly more difficult over the last week, but there are still plenty of fish being caught on daddies, dries, buzzers, hares ears and lures. The fish have moved down in the water so fish a longer leader if possible and for windy conditions try a slow sinking line with a shorter leader.

Narborough trout lakes 01760 338005. With all lakes stocked the fishing is improving. Willow lake has started to give up some of its better fish with a cracking 7�lb fish that was full finned being caught last week. The other lakes are also fishing well producing solid fighting fish. As you might expect the fish are all in good condition and will be feeding. All the usual flies have caught fish at Narborough this week.

South Elmham trout fishery 07500 703389. Catch of the week went to James Hunt, for returning a Rainbow estimated at 15lb. He was using black buzzers and montana nymphs. Runner-up was Andy Hallsworth with another Rainbow estimated at 10lb. Louise Frazer, aged 16, caught a 6lb rainbow – her first catch ever. And Ron Bevan returned a 5lb Brownie. The recent re-stock appears to have activated the bigger fish this week.
