Catch of the week:
Mr. D. N. Potts recorded this week’s best fish a superb fin perfect 3lb 7oz rainbow on a ledger rig.

Memorable Moment of the week:
It’s good to see our angler’s visiting all of our sites and with Fontburn currently closed it was couple of Fontburn regular’s, Sid Barnes and John Summerbell, who had an exceptional midweek session. Both anglers were delighted to weigh in 8 fish limits taken on fly and bait tactics.
  • Best areas and flies: Millshield Point has produced the best sport on the fly with Daddies, White Muddler and Black Fritz all taking fish.
  • Best areas and baits / lures:The First fence on the south side and Pow Hill continue to be the best areas with ledgered Orange PowerBait Eggs and small Mepps spinner’s catching well.
