Not what you might expect on a F-Fly.
The recent good weather has had a good number of anglers on the river with some excellent fish being caught.
Wild Brown Trout of 16 and 18 inches have been reported with others not far behind. Three visitors from Sunderland fishing on day tickets took away memories of a cracking day which included a 3.5lb Chubb. The picture here is of another similar sized fish, this time taken by a Willington member of a small F-Fly.
If you’re out there catching great fish, unexpected fish or just having a cracking session please be sure to let us know, send us your pictures too.
We have been contacted by the police who have had a fly rod and reel handed in by a member of the public. It was found in the Pagebank area.
If this is yours contact the police at Crook.
Our good friends at Anglers Lodge at Jubilee Lakes have Jim Fearn fro Rio giving casting classes June 23rd, July 7th and July 14th.
These are selling out fast at £30.00 for an hour of one to one tuition. What a great idea for Fathers Day for that special angler dad.
Don’t delay, spaces going fast.
Recent open day at Jubilee Lakes, now you can have one to one tuition.
We have a small change to our stocking this year.
Previously fish have been marked with a black spot however this year in an attempt to reduce the handling required to distinguish a stockie from a wild fish the adipose fin has been removed.
Please do all you can to return wild fish to the river quickly with as little harm as possible, quick recognition should help with this. Thank you.
