Eyebrook Trout Fishery season ticket holder Stuart Bilsdon of Uppingham has been catching plenty of hard fighting top quality rainbow trout on daddies. Gary Legge fished claret hoppers to good effect and caught ten rainbows while boat fishing recently. Ian Simmons and Neil Benjamin enjoyed their visit to Eyebrook from the north- east and caught on daddies and bibios. Season ticket holder Bill Whittle of Grantham was content with a brace of fish taken on a green and white tadpole and included a deep hooked brown trout that weighed 3lb 9oz, Bill also caught nine fish last week from the main basin on black buzzers. The eventual winning pair in ‘Bennetts Bash’ boat fishing competition organised by Mick Bennett were Tim Polito and Calum Naylor with eight fish for 14lb 13oz and in runners up position were Nodder Bennett and Adi Naylor with six fish that weighed 11lb 10oz.
After a pretty reasonable sort of summer it’s finally that time of the season with the water now cooling and the weed beds slowly but surely dying back, the resident trout are now being more frequently caught on daddies and floating fry patterns.
