TELEPHONE NUMBER: 01676 522754
FISHING REPORT – WEEK ENDING 21/12/14
Last week 57 rods caught 229 fish for an average of 4 fish per rod.
Best fishing for a while with the milder overcast weather providing good conditions. Lots of fish in the 3 – 6lb range coming out along with a few bigger samples.
The best fish of the week was a 9lb 2oz rainbow caught by Mr R Hepburn of Rugby who was fishing from a boat on Cocks Close and he caught this and four others on an orange Hot Head Lure fished on a sinking line. Mr R Lind of Havant caught an 8lb 14oz rainbow in a nine fish catch taken from the bank of Cocks Close and these all came to either a Bloodworm or blue flash Damsel fished on a floating line. Venue regular Rod Lacey of Nuneaton fished from a boat on Cocks Close and caught 14 fish to an estimated 9lb using his favoured Diawl Bach Nymph fished on a floating line. Harold Pritchett of Atherstone fished from a boat on Cocks Close taking five to 5lb 12oz and returned a further six fish to an estimated 8lb catching them all on his own tied Damsel fished on a floating line.
The best areas last week were on the high bank platforms and into the old boat jetty corner.
Top flies have been Cats Whisker, Damsel Nymph, black Buzzer, Diawl Bach, black Fritz Lure and Tadpoles.
THE FISHERY WILL BE CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY AND NEW YEARS DAY BUT OPEN AT 8am ON ALL OTHER DAYS THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAY.
WE WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL OUR CUSTOMERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
