Last week 107 rods caught 336 fish for an average of 3.16.

Cocks Close has been in very good form since it re-opened last week although the fish are tending to shoal around the lodge corner and wires bank areas.  Small Buzzers, Diawl Bach, GRHE or Damsel Nymph fished on floating lines have been the best tactics with boat anglers doing better generally.

Mr B Flecher of Stourbridge caught eight fish from a boat on Cocks Close with the best going 4lb and these fell to Diawl Bach fished on a floating line.  Brian Ward of Sutton Coldfield had fish to 4lb 12oz in an eight fish catch again from a boat on Cocks Close and these fell to black and green Buzzers.  John Considine of Leicester fished catch and release from the bank of Cocks Close and caught 11 fish to 3½lb on small black and green Nymphs.

On the members’ water Great Pool, Sean Lacey of Nuneaton caught five fish to 4lb on Buzzers fished on a floating line.  On Park Meadow, Chris Tetstall of Solihull caught seven fish to 4lb on small wet flies.

Cocks Close opens at 8am and closes at dusk.
