Fish 430 (Season 4,361) Returns 49 (647) Rod average 8.7 (6.7)

It has been a great week on Pitsford with a rod average of an incredible 8.7 for the week. There have been some great catches when the conditions and tactics have been right. One of our regular anglers had a fantastic day beginning on dries and then switching to washing line tactics in the main basin she boated 32 fish.

Gavin and Graham two of our season ticket holders fished small fabs on washing line tactics with red holo diawl bachs to take 50 fish between them. Boat anglers are now out fishing the bank with lots of fish across the main basin in open water.

Dries such as crippled midge, big red and shuttlecock cdc’s are working while small fabs and boobies teamed with nymphs such as muskins, diawl bachs and nemo crunchers are working.

Fish are being caught from the bank but mainly early and late in the day. During these times dries will work and especially in the evenings small sedge patterns will catch.

Best Rainbow: 4lb 8oz.

Beginners Courses: 25 July; 2,8,14,23 & 28 August; 10 & 19 September and other dates throughout the season. Please call 01780 686441.
