    Another tricky week with the water still warm although anglers are catching fish on cloudier, cooler days.
    Damsels continue to be the main food source with fish taking nymphs and adults.
    Boat and bank anglers are finding more fish at the top of the wind where the water is much clearer.
    Please take extra care during the summer when returning fish. They should be unhooked in the net without removing from the water.

    Upcoming competitions
    Sunday November 12th Dave Hughes Memorial Fur & Feather (bank & boat)
