154 anglers caught 530 fish of which 340 were returned.
6lb 7oz Darren Oram, Aldwincle, boat
6lb 6oz Chris Redhead, Whittlesey, black/red buzzer, boat
Bank – coarse bank, east arm, dam(in a north wind)
Boat – pylon point, down middle, dam(in a north wind)
red diawl bach, black/red buzzer, damsel nymph, dry blue damsel, daddy, olive hopper, white/green lure, tequila blob, black or white snake.
On first glance the rod average of 3.4 last week was good for mid July. However the results were helped by a few boat anglers catching good bags:
Nigel Cheetham, 24 fish, fab & buzzers, deep water off pylon
Andrius Papeika, 24, white snake or dry blue damsel, anchored off dam
Alan Rennocks, 15 bloodworm, red diawl
Steve Loveridge 15 candy booby, red diawl
Chris Redhead, 14, deep buzzers
Ian McGregor, 14, size16 red head diawl
Matt Collerson, 14, dry damsel, sedge, red diawl
Bank fish in particular was hard with 2 or 3 fish a good score.
Plenty of boat anglers also struggled but everyday last week there were a few boats who cracked the method.
