Fish 622 (Season 1,756) Returns 99 (303) Rod average 6.3(5.8)

Pitsford is on fire this week from both the bank and the boat with a rod average of 6.3.

There are large hatches from first thing and the fish are gorging on buzzer throughout the day.

Anglers are reporting fish from most areas with many anglers able to catch 20 plus fish, in fact several boats have reported bringing 40 fish to the boat.

Floating or midge tip lines with teams of buzzer or diawl bachs are all that is needed.

Notable catches this week include a 4lb 8oz Rainbow for Ian Hyde, part of a 15 fish haul, 11 of which were released. Martin Fox took a 4lb Brown. Simon Bosher reported catching 15 fish in three hours fishing buzzers on a washing line method. Danny Pett and Rick Varley had another great day taking over 40 fish to nymphing tactics. Ron Oldroyd had a great day with over 20 fish to buzzer. Phil Jordan was targeting bigger fish and had 15 fish, five of which were Browns, up to 6lb.  The fantastic fishing looks set to continue through the coming week.
