Posted by & filed under Reports.

Despite some heavy afternoon showers, Saturday was a great day to be out on Draycote Water. The bank anglers are doing well for the time of year, catching the odd brace here and there. Season permit holder Alan Grant had 3 fish off the Tower Bank on diawl bachs. Young Mike Garner caught a brace from Rainbow Corner using Bibios. Steve Proffitt caught 4 fish from the overflow on the Tower Bank on FAB’s and hares ears on a floating line. Andy Jordan, also fishing from the bank, netted 2 fish from Rainbow Corner on green holographic diawl bachs. Out on the boats Draycote stalwart Jon Crowley netted 11 fish drifting from M buoy to K buoy on orange foam daddies fished on a midge tip line. Scott Graham and Dave Reynolds had a bakers dozen between them using snakes fished on sinking lines. John Brown and Andy Campbell used similar tactics to net 6 apiece. Tim Burn had over 20 fish to the boat using flies such as daddies, FAB’s and snakes, drifting across the middle of the reservoir.
