        5lb 6oz Chris Redhead, black buzzer, boat

        Best areas
        Fish are well spread.

        Best Patterns
        black or olive buzzers, red or black diawl, red cruncher, small damsel, red apps, candy or tequila fab, white/green or black/green lures.

        The water temperature has risen a little to 10.2C today and there is lots more fly life hatching at last. Fish are feeding well on black or olive buzzers of all sizes.
        Boat anglers are getting the best bags using a floater or midge tip with a fab or small booby on the point.
        Lures fished 2-4 foot down are working early morning before the buzzer hatch starts.
        Even though Elinor has been busy the fish are well distributed with most anglers catching a few without anyone sitting on a shoal and catching silly numbers.
        Double stocking this week!
        Bank anglers are having to work harder to catch when the sun is out.
        There are signs that the evening rise will be starting anytime now so there should be some good dry fly action.

        Some boats are still available for the Scierra pairs heat on Sunday May 16th.
