Catch of the week:
The bank west of the sailing club has been the best area all week with both fly and bait anglers netting limit catches. This included Ray Whaley, Mr. S Lilian, who netted 19lb 8oz and Alan Morton who caught ad returned 12 on the fly

Memorable Moment of the week:
Ashington Kingfishers held their annual competition Sunday and had an excellent day despite the cold. 24 members netted 92 fish with six limit catches, the heaviest of which was presented by Bruce Tait with over 14lb to take the plaudits.
Best areas and flies:
The bank west of the sailing club is holding lots of fish early season and any fly anglers venturing west have not been disappointed. An intermediate line is key to success and bright lures fished with a medium speed retrieve seem to be enough to entice the fish.
Best areas and baits / lures:
The south bank near the first fence has been the stand out area with numerous limits from this area. Bait anglers have also had great sport west of the sailing club on this ‘new bank for 2019’ for the bait anglers. The most successful anglers continue to use strong scented attractants and ledgered Powerbait or Mice-tails
