FISHING REPORT - WEEK ENDING 22/05/16
Last week 67 rods caught 254 fish for an average of 3.79 per rod.
The fishing has been very good albeit a little tricky with the fish now fully switched on to the naturals. There are fish moving all over, both on Cocks Close and Park Meadow and are rising to small Olives and Buzzers that seem to be hatching all day. Black CDC Emergers, dry Olives, Shipmans Buzzer, Hoppers and even dry Daddies have caught fish off the top. Small black or olive Buzzers drifted round in the breeze are also accounting for a few fish on both pools.
There were a large number of 5lb+ fish caught and returned with Paul Fleeman of Redditch catching over 20 fish from a boat on Cocks Close, all of which were safely returned and the best estimated at 5lb 8oz. These all came to a small black Buzzer fished on a floating line. Bill Carmen also of Redditch caught a 5lb fish which was put back using a small orange Diawl Bach fished on a floating line from a boat on the Park Meadow pool. Dave Kimbrell and Derek Jones shared a boat on Cocks Close and caught 13 fish between them and these all fell to a combination of Buzzers and Dries. John Riley of Atherstone bucked the trend a little by catching seven fish from a boat on Cocks Close and these all came to a white Zonker fished on an intermediate line.
