Well this period of 12 days has seen 118 rod visits account for 164 trout with the best just under 4lbs and 156 of 2lb + with a ‘good few’ 3 pounders thrown  in. Lovely conditioned fish they are too and all are giving a good account of themselves when hooked with one or two  members reporting  ‘being taken down to the backing’ by the hard fighting fish. Location, location remains the key with small shoals of fish inhabiting certain areas. These recently have included the swims just up from the Club Hut; the west bank from the willow to the north west corner and the gravels and cromer pier on the north bank. As to what to use well fish have been taken on floating lines with buzzers, gold heads such as small damsels and weighted cats whisker and   intermediates with small lures in black and green; orange and white. I am sure also other patterns have caught so do be prepared to vary your methods. This was ably illustrated over this last 12 days as the Saturday before last I was down and buzzers were ‘ the thing to have on’, last Saturday small lures were working best with very few takes on buzzers. So in a nutshell be prepared to go looking to find the fish; explore different depths and be prepared to change patterns. In other words to get the best out of the current fishing ‘flexibility in your approach’ is a key factor. Also at present best times would seem to be from late morning to early afternoon with very little taken either early or late.
