Draycotes opening week exceeded even the wildest of expectations, with the rod average hitting 29 for opening day, and rounding off to 17.4 for the whole week.
A lot of good quality fish were taken too, with reports of an 8lb rainbow and 7lb brown being returned. Season ticket holder Lorenzo Serrano landed several browns over 5lb, two of which came on the same cast. All were returned.
With far to many good bags to list, one that stands out from the crowd was regular angler John Hoskins who weighed in 8 fish for 37lb ! All were taken on a combination of diawl bachs and buzzers.
The best areas have been literally the whole lake, both bank and boat. The pre season stocking has spread well throughout, allowing anglers to catch in all areas.
Best flies – Pitsford Pea, blue flash damsel, goldhead damsels, orange blobs, small boobies and buzzers.
