Elinor continued its rich vein of form with another week of great surface sport. Fly hatches have been the best for a few years with buzzers, pond olive, daddies, the first few damsels and a significant mayfly hatch.
The majority of fish caught are 2lb + with plenty over 4lb.
Although the biggest bags have come from the boats there are plenty of fish in range of bank anglers with dries scoring best although some have had success on snakes or damsels on an intermediate.
Floater or midge tip with a washing line or dries are the best boat methods.
Water remains crystal clear and at 16.8 C, two foot down at midday.
