      A busy couple of weeks at Elinor. On warmer days there have been some great buzzer hatches with sizes ranging from 16s – 10s.
      Bank fisherman found it more difficult on bright days in the clear water but had good sport in overcast light winds.
      The west arm is holding big numbers of fish with washing line the best method over the shallower water. The rest of the lake has seen fish feeding deeper with damsels and buzzers fished 8- 12 foot down getting the big bags.
      On most evenings there has been an evening rise to small hatching buzzers. If the wind drops there was a spectacular rise. Small shipmans or cdc in darker shades proved effective.

      March 30 & 31 Iain Barr World Bankmasters
      50 anglers fished the singles event with competitors from Belgium, Norway and Finland up against UK anglers. The whole lake was pegged with anglers fishing 11 sessions of 30 minutes and doing a complete circuit. Bright sunshine and calm conditions prevailed for most of the match.
      Dan Swales put in a fantastic performance to catch 15 fish off 9 of his pegs using damsels on an intermediate or a chamois worm under an indicator to scoop £1100.00 with the top 10 all receiving cash.
      1. Dan Swales 15 fish off 9 = 24 points
      2. James Stephenson 15 off 7 = 22pts
      3. Rob Edmunds 13 off 8 = 21 pts
      4. Andrew Scott 13 off 7 = 20pts
      5. Dave Nielsen 11 off 7 = 18pts
      6. Dean Appleby 16pts
      7. Pete Appleby 15pts
      8. Graham Willis 12pts
      9. Glenn Appleby 12 pts
      10. Christian Jadoille 10pts

      Sunday 31st saw 17 pairs compete. The wind changed to a brisk NE with an extra three layers of clothing required. 10 sessions of 30 minutes.
      Damsels, buzzers and assorted worms fished deep and slow did the damage.
      1. Rob Edmunds/Andrew Scott 15 fish from 11 pegs = 26 points
      2. Anthony Meadows/David Nielson 16 off 9 = 25pts
      3. Dean Appleby/Craig Crompton 15 off 8 = 23pts
      4. Glenn Appleby/Pete Appleby 12 from 10 = 22pts
      5. Mark Haycock/Phil Shaw-Browne 12 from 8 = 20pts
