‘Festive and free’ Winter Match on Sunday 15th December.

Members only.

There will be the usual 3 fishing sessions between 09.30 and 12.30, according to Club rules with a maximum of 2 flies per cast and a 6-fish limit.

A ‘lucky dip’ will replace the raffle, and we therefore ask that all participants donate one wrapped unisex present to the value of about £5.00. Food for the festive season will be kindly provided by Fred Lines, and there will also be mulled wine and coffee/tea. The Club will bear the cost of the event, including the monetary prizes; so, come and get some Christmas spirit!


FISHING REPORT 6th November 2019

Well clear cool water has most certainly livened up our catch rate and this last 9 days has seen 220 trout caught with a rod average of just on 2 per visit. It is also great to see some limit bags now showing in returns- the first ones for months!!! Super quality fish are being caught with the vast majority 2lb + and a good sprinkling of 3 pounders. Most fish caught have been near the surface or definitely within the top two feet of water so floating lines have proved most popular. As to patterns to use these have been many and varied with depth, speed of retrieve and location being the main things to concentrate on. I know of fish being caught on buzzers;  daiwl bachs; black and  green montana; foam bodied daddies;  shiphams; hoppers; damsels  and orange lures and I expect other patterns have caught also. Top spots remain on the north bank gravels and adjacent swims; the south bank from point to club hut and the middle of the west bank. Members have also seen some decent rises by the outlet but I am not aware of many fish being caught in that area. Fishing in a ripple where possible has provided best sport although quite a few fish are showing when conditions are calm although these are proving more choosy! A further stocking is planned during this month (date to be agreed) so the decent fishing should hopefully continue and help make up for those dour, desperate and disappointing summer months.
