The shop has been completely refurbished and stocks equipment from Snowbee, Archer, John Morgan, Leeda, Profil and Wychwood. We have a large range of flies and accessories with more on the way.
Prospects for July
We are weed free as usual. Fish are taking all fly types from dries to flexi bloodworm. Gnats, hoppers and parachutes are proving deadly when there is no wind. Fished as indicators above nymphs and crunchers is doubly effective with traditional hares ears being the best nymph to use. Slow retrieves and large static flies are working very well with sinking daddies the best choice.
Rod Average and largest fish (to act as a guide to fishing prospects)
Catch average for the last week was just over 2.5 fish. Largest fish of the last two weeks is 5.5lbs, with bags of 3lb fish again common. Largest catch and release bag was ten fish.
