Foremark weekly report week ending 17/07/2016

Telephone Number: 01283 703202


A good weeks fishing last week, although a couple of days were a bit of a challenge. The week started of with a bag a rod average of 13 in mid July has got to be fantastic,   daddies and cdcs fished in open water did the business. Tuesday was another good day with a rod average of 8.5 again all fish taken on or just under the surface and in open water. Wednesday and Thursday were more of a challenge with a rod average of below one. Then on Friday the fishing started to improve again with drys and nymphs doing best and a rod average of 5.2. Saturday through up some amazing fishing for some rods with hoppers and homemade dry’s working very well with a lot of fish showing between the pontoon and number one buoy. Mr Glen Moody and his boat partner reported catching over 70 fish glen wrote in the comments section of the booking out sheet “The best days fly fishing in35 years”. Also on Saturday season permit holder Mr R. Cotterill boated 30 fish on homemade dry fly in open water and by the tower and also wrote “The best day at Foremark to date (9 years). Sunday was back to the norm with a rod average of 1.3. So when asked how isit fishing my reply has to be very good on some days but more of a challenge others but there has been some fantastic dry fly fishing,.
