Foremark weekly report week ending 27th September 2015
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
Anglers experienced a very significant improvement in sport this week with some remarkable catches recorded throughout the period. This is reflected by the weekly rod average which saw a rise from 1.7 to 4.32! Catch returns also increased as the week progressed peaking with rod averages on Friday & Saturday of 8.2 & 6.6 respectively. Whilst some anglers have done well fishing just sub-surface, the best of the action has without doubt been to those on dry fly tactics, especially using daddy long legs patterns. The numbers & general size of the crane fly in evidence this autumn has become the subject of much conversation, as has the manner in which the fish have still remained active on the surface in extremely bright conditions. Numerous individual catches in excess of twenty fish have appeared in the return sheets. Some sport has been enjoyed by bank anglers but this week has proved the need to be afloat with many fish being taken over open water, in the vicinity of the Aerators, or the Cascade
Some of the results are well worthy of mention. Mr Scragg started well on Monday with a 9 fish tally to surface boobies & muddlers. Mr Worley & Mr Spence caught 14 between them during their Wednesday visit. Things hotted up on Thursday when Mr Fogg fished deep nymphs in the Cascade ending with a final tally of 27 to the net. He commented that they had not come on for him until after 16:00hrs.
Friday saw action all over. Jamie Scott used Snakes & Crunchers in the Cascade and strangely also ended his session with a tally of 27.Scott Wilson concentrated on the Aerators with daddies & recorded 29. Meanwhile, Alan Topping drifted open water alternating between daddies & minkies & put 10 into the net. Mr Graney & Mr Burton shared an active boat too on Friday landing 15 & 8 respectively. The action continued into Saturday when season rods Ricky Cotterill & Dermot Murphy had a field day using midge & ghost tip lines in conjunction with buzzer patterns & submerged orange daddies. They managed a total of 42 to the net & both anglers netted rainbows of just under five pounds during their session.
The week ended a little quieter with a rod average for the day on Sunday of 2.8. Nevertheless, Mr Reid displayed how it should be done with eleven to the net on orange daddies. Mr Nadin also caught a fine rainbow of 5lbs on a fiery brown CDC pattern, the best specimen in his seven fish bag – a fitting conclusion to a great week of surface action.
