Catch of the week:

Memorable Moment of the week:
Monday madness on the jetty for Charlie Clark from Middlesbrough home just after dinner with eight rainbows and a total catch weighing 20lb.

Best areas and flies:
Although all the fly action has been along the east end bay of late, John Evans found success along the moorside keeping one rainbow and returning four on a Butcher. With the some fine weather forecast this coming week the moorside will provide some excellent early evening sport with plenty of fly life on the surface.

Best areas and baits / lures:
The lightly fished moorside is proving excellent for anglers who like to have a walk and a copper or silver no2 size Mepps spinner. Green and chartreuse garlic Powerbait and white Mice-tails have worked best for bait anglers.
