Exclusion Zone  Due to the work being carried out on the Hensborough Bank there is an exclusion zone in place, clearly marked with yellow buoys. Under no circumstances are anglers to enter this area as there are divers in the water.

Week Ending:     30th July  2023      Rod Av: 5.35  Water Temperature: 16.5 °C

A wet start to the week with cool temperatures, although thankfully the rain did stop just after lunch. With the wind coming from the Southwest. Once again the good fishing continued and we had a good start to the week, with a rod average of 5.35. Once the rain stopped on the afternoon, a couple of bank anglers ventured out. Draycote member Paul Walley landed a brace from the Tower Bank. While Mr Finch Noyes who fished for the last four hours landed 3 fish, also from the Tower Bank on small grey minkies. Out on the boats Ian Richardson & Bob Smith caught fish on a washing line using crunchers on either a floater or midge tip. Kevin Rees once again fished dries with his favourite size 14 crippled midge once again taking fish ended the day on 13. Fellow member John Dickens landed 20 fish also on crippled midge drifting from the exclusion zone buoys towards M & N Buoy. Fishing for an afternoon Colin England & Andy Lille used daddies to great effect landing 18 fish, again drifting from the Draycote Dam out.
