Overcast conditions Tuesday, with winds coming from the West with the rain holding off. On the bank Tony Broadway used a washing line with crunchers, before changing to crippled midge finishing with 8 fish from the Tower Bank. Draycote member Alan Grant also fished the Tower Bank using a humungus booby on an intermediate line landing 7 fish. Including a fantastic 8lb rainbow.  On the boats all water member Andy Lillie fished with Graham England, with the pair landing 16 fish on a morning boat. They fished daddies and FAB drifting from Rainbow Corner to A Buoy and also in Dunn’s Bay to land their fish. Also fishing on a morning boat Dave Atkins landed a dozen fish, with a washing line and also a snite snake. With Dave’s best drifting being the Valve Tower to Dunns and then M to N Buoy. Ed Douglas stuck to dries all day landing 14 with crippled midge and F flies being his most productive pattern. Ed drifted from the Draycote Dam towards B Buoy and then out to Y Buoy to take his fish. Another angler who opted for dries all day was Kevin Rees who landed 19 fish, also using crippled midge and F flies. Kevin found the best area for him was drifting from M Buoy out towards N Buoy. Lester Booth & Nigel Nixon landed 20 fish to their boat drifting from Rainbow Corner. Using a wide variety of dries big reds, Shipmans, hares ear CDC and Red Hoppers.
