Foremark weekly report week ending 19/06/2016
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
Heavy rain showers have been a major feature in the weather at end of the week along with some bright sunshine and light winds. However the majority of the sport has been on or just below the surface. The large numbers of pin fry have meant that a lot of the trout have been preoccupied on it and very visible. Black knats, Hoppers, Cdc shuttlecock buzzers, Floating may fly and large daddies fished static on long drifts in open water has produced the better results. Sinking lines and intermediate lines have also worked for some anglers using boobies and Dawson’s olives.
Mr Clarke and Mr Martin took 13 fish on a mix of shipman’s and hoppers. Season permit holders Mr Graney and Mr Burton landed 16 fish on daddies and may fly. While on Sunday Mr G Owen fished a variety of dry’s to take 10 fish to his boat.
Check out our stocking video of 1000 rainbows last week on our facebook page www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore with a further stocking of 1000 rainbows due this week.
Recently we have had a few nice pike caught on fly so we are now offering limited fly only pike fishing, one boat a day. All pike fishing must be PRE- BOOKED you must also have a suitable unhooking mat, the correct size landing net, long Forceps, all fly’s must be attached to a wire trace, All fly’s to be 4 inch or longer in length. All pike to be returned. NO BANK FISHING FOR PIKE.
Water levels are now up and the water clarity is very clear, so if fishing from the banks look for deep water with a drop off close in. Time to look out for our usual fly hatch which normally happens this time of year so cdc shuttle cocks and hoppers are worth trying a dry fly again this week.
Don’t forget to pick up your loyalty card from the lodge, once you have purchased 10 of the same permit, your next visit of that permit option is FREE valid at all three fisheries, Thornton-Foremark-Draycote
