The weather forecasters certainly got Wednesday weather wrong. The forecast was for very strong wind and thundery downpours. While the wind was a little gusty in the morning, the afternoon gave near perfect conditions with a light ripple and overcast skies. With only one heavy rain shower early evening. As a result of the poor (wrong) forecast it was a quite day at the fishery. On the bank Draycote member Mike Garner landed 3 fish, 2 from Rainbow Corner and 1 from Lincroft. All on different flies, cruncher, cormorants and a green pea all landed Mike fish. On the boats Ed Douglas landed 13 fish, 8 of them falling to dries once again cripple midge of F flies proving to be his best patterns. Tony Sharples fishing his second day of a two day break landed 3 fish on buzzers. However, the fish he landed where of great quality a 8lb & 4lb rainbow taken on buzzers. Fishery ranger & Guide Jim Sheehan took Jason & Brooke Sarrow out on a boat beginner session. Having mastered the casting they went on to land 11 fish in the fishing element all taken on the washing line. To see pictures if the session please visit www.facebook.com/flyfishstore Fishery Ranger Kevin Jones took to the water after his morning shift to land 9 fish using a FAB on the point and then hoppers on the droppers fished wet. With a number of fish coming from the Farborough Dam Wall near J & T Buoy. Rob Hepburn took advantage of the last four hours to land 7 fish on dries with small CDC and daddies proving to be his best patterns.
