Wilson’s rainbow glee

Larkwood Trout Fishery: Season ticket holder Ernie Wilson caught an 11lb 5oz rainbow trout on a fritz marabou damsel, one of six double figure rainbows taken this week.

Larkwood is fishing well at the moment, with West Stow lake the best of the two, best flies being black fritz goldhead, cats whisker or bloodworm. These can be fished with a slow figure of eight or static under an indicator.

Water quality is excellent at the moment so fishing fairly light is recommended.

Larkwood bought a batch of top quality triploid rainbows last year which will be ready for stocking in April. They also have several large brown trout coming on nicely for the new season, some of these being around the 6lb mark.

The website, www.larkwoodfishery.co.uk, also has a two-minute film showing Larkwood through the four seasons.
