Last week 89 rods caught 283 fish for an average of 3.16 fish per rod.

The fishing for most has been good with some lovely fish caught including the best fish of the year so far.  Mr Paul Fleeman of Redditch caught a 17lb 8oz rainbow from the bank of Cocks Close and took it on his own tied orange and black Cats Whisker Lure fished on an intermediate line.  Dave Bratby of Birmingham caught and returned a fish estimated at 9lb to 10lb, again from the bank of Cocks Close and this came to a mini Cats Whisker fished on a floating line.  Ray Inman of Birmingham fished from the boat on Cocks Close and caught seven fish to 6lb, with Cats Whisker again his successful pattern.  Rod Lacey of Nuneaton fished catch and release from a boat a couple of times during last week catching 15 fish on each visit with fish to 7lb falling to Diawl Bach fished on floating lines.

On the members’ waters, the Great Pool is now fishing well with the fish spread around the pool and Nick Howarth of Nuneaton caught seven fish to 4lb using Buzzers fished on a floating line.  On the Park Meadow pool, Allan Bowen of Birmingham caught seven fish to 3lb using various small Nymph patterns on a floating line.

The best areas have been the road bank and old boat jetty corner on Cocks Close, the shallower water and around the middle island on Great Pool and the far bank from the jetty on Park Meadow.

Top flies are Cats Whisker, orange Fritz, black or white Tadpole, Minkies, GRHE, Damsel Nymph, black Buzzer and Bloodworm.
