Choosing the right colour match for the hatching buzzers proved to be a challenge in itself. As the week finished in baking temperatures, with the water warming up, the first hatches of mayflies appeared and trout could be seen sipping them in the surface film. Best flies have been mayflies, small drys, damsels and gold heads fished deeper during the bright and hot spells.

Rocklands Mere 07900 004953.The last couple of weeks has seen near perfect conditions, with fish rising taking hatching flies throughout the day.

Don Juler banked eight rainbows in total, most coming to small dries. Michael Parker from Wymondham caught an amazing 19 fish, by ringing the changes with his flies. These varied from black buzzers, white 'moth' dries and large nymphs. Alan Perkins fished a three-hour session and was rewarded with three rainbows. He was using very small dries, cdc buzzers and emergers. There should be hatches of mayflies this week and early damsels have also been seen in the margin.
