FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 9/2/14
Last week 51 rods caught 179 fish for an average of 3.51.
The fishing towards the back end of the week was excellent with good bags of fish capped by a couple of really big fish. The best fish was a 12lb 10oz rainbow caught by Karl Harman of Lutterworth who used a black Cats Whisker to tempt it along with four other fish to 3lb whilst fishing from the bank of Cocks Close. Jonathan Preston of Solihull caught an 11lb 12oz rainbow from a boat on Cocks Close and this one came to a Damsel Nymph pattern fished on an intermediate line. Dave Bratby of Birmingham fished the bank of Cocks Close and found fish all around the pool catching and releasing 17 fish to 4lb on his favoured Damsel with an orange bead. Terry Holder of Barwell also fished the bank of Cocks Close and he caught eight fish with two over 4lb and Damsels were again the successful fly.
The top patterns this week has to be the Damsel Nymph with Cats Whisker, Black Buzzer and Bloodworm also picking up a few fish.
Best areas have been the road bank and the high bank on Cocks Close. The members’ pools Great Pool and Hall Pool are still heavily coloured due to the heavy rainfall but anglers are fishing Park Meadow.
