The shop has been completely refurbished and stocks equipment from Snowbee, Archer, John Morgan, Leeda, Veniard, Profil and Wychwood. We have a large range of flies and accessories with more on the way.
Prospects for May
Fly hatch is now fully underway. Water is crystal clear with no weed and no surface debris. Fish will take easily on flies such as black gnat, bristol hoppers and hawthorns making for great surface action. Small hares ears and pheasant tails will get fish sub-surface. At lower levels bloodworm and damsels work well especially when there is a ripple.
Rod Average and largest fish (to act as a guide to fishing prospects)
Catch average for the last week was just under 3 fish. Largest fish of of the last week was six pounds. Blues are showing with the best just over three pounds.
