Foremark weekly report week ending 10/07/2016
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
A real mixed week for results this week the start of the week was a little slow however some anglers still managed to get amongst the fish on sinking lines and long drifts in open water. Tuesday was very similar with muddlers fishing best during the cloudy spells. Wednesday the rod average improved from 1.8 to 4.6 with floating lines fished in conjunction with boobies and tadpoles fished on or just under the surface. By Thursday the rod average was up to 6.1 again floating lines with daddy long legs doing best. Thursdays weather had a big effect as the rod average fell to 0.4, this followed on to Saturday. Suprise Sunday the rod average was making a good recovery reaching 2.6 the fish were back on the feed taking flys from the surface and the top layers.
Pick of the Week
Mr S Wilson, boated 20 plus fish on Thursday in open water near buoy4 on daddies. Season permit holder Mr R Cotterill, landing 12 fish to his boat on a ghost tip line with a black and gold sparkler. Mr P bailey enjoyed a last 4 hour boat on Sunday taking 6 fish to a yellow daddy and hopper.
