Draycote is now in top form with fish being caught everywhere, on all methods. Draycote hosted an AMFC match on Saturday and all bar 2 anglers bagged their eight fish limit from a field of 30 anglers !! The boats headed to all areas of the lake, highlighting the vast spread of fish.
The bank fishing too remains good, though on very bright days things have been tougher. Rainbow Corner remains a top spot, though good bags have come from the tower bank, Dunns Bay and Lincroft point.
The boats are producing fantastic catches with visiting anglers describing their experience as the best fishing they have had in years ! There has been over 70 fish above 4lb recorded this week, though many have come from the aerators. I managed an evening session and my partner, Garry Simpson, landed 28 fish over the aerators, many over 3lb. Garry took the majority of his fish on a yellow dog nobbler, where mine fell to Fab blobs. Toft Shallows is also producing some brilliant sport to buzzers and diawl bachs fished on floating lines.
The best areas have been all over the lake. The best flies have been, owl buzzers, black buzzers, olive buzzers, diawl bachs, dry bits, damsels, FAB blobs, and boobies.
Best lines are floating, slow intermediates and a DI-3.
