Woods and Munro from Edinburgh enjoyed their recent visit to the fishery and caught a total of forty-seven rainbows on dry sedge patterns, daddies and hoppers. Season ticket holder Dave Shaer of Peterborough boat fished recently and enjoyed a red-letter day catching eleven fish on a combination of diawl bach, buzzers, blobs and green and white tadpoles. Graham Emms recently caught ten rainbows while boat fishing on green diawl bach. Members representing Hertfordshire Fly Dressers Guild enjoyed their boat outing to the Eyebrook and caught some hard fighting rainbows on both daddies and nymphs.
After a pretty reasonable sort of summer it’s that time of the season and the water now cooling and weed beds slowly but surely dying back, the resident trout are being more frequently caught on daddies and floating fry patterns.
