Monday was quite a calm day with a very light southerly breeze and a shower through the afternoon, which wasn’t forecast. The rod average came out at 4.1, with once again most of the fish being caught in the top few feet of the water column. Tony Broadway fished from the bank to net 4 fish on FAB’s and shrimps. The father and son pairing of Jim and Richard Hall had 6 fish between them from the bank using lures and hares ears. Jim and Richard tried various areas around the shoreline before settling on the Swans Nest. Season permit holder Andrew Tasker caught 5 fish whilst bank fishing down in Toft Shallows. Andrew used minkies and floating fry patterns to catch his fish from the swans Nest down to the Big Willow Tree. Out on the boats Andy Lilley and Steve England had 16 fish to the boat between them, all on minkies. Bob Barfoot had 4 fish to the boat as did John Dickens. Bob used everything from a DI6 to a floater, whilst John used a midge tip line and black and white humungus.
