Foremark has continued with some fabulous early season sport, during the last week a further 1800 trout were caught!
On Monday intermediate lines with black fritz damsels and boobies were doing the business. Derby county anglers Mr A and Mr S Hayward took over 30 fish to their boat while on the bank Mr A Topping fished the bank in flamingo and landed 18 fish in a afternoon session. Tuesday the fish were well up for it with 37 rods taking 397 fish for a rod average of 10.7 Floating lines did well when fished with a long leader as season permit holder Mr B Burton found taking 27 from the bank. Mr N Bilsbrough also had a very good day (thank you for the nice comments in the return sheet). Wednesday Flamingo bay and the sailing club banks was in action again fritz black and green lures intermediate lines being the most successful method. I Buckley R Jeffrey, M Julian and G Tomkinson all caught over 20 fish each. Thursday a switch to buzzers or crunchers or even a muddler helped to put extra fish in the net. Friday Mr S Wilson, J Machin, P Fitch and J Wooffinden all fished the banks around Flamingo bay and reported some very good catches, on a variety of flys and methods.
