Great start to the 2017 season.....
The start of the season has been great with many big doubles been caught all in beautiful condition which will be a bench mark of the fish to come. Last season saw many hours of thankless feeding three to four times a day which has pushed to big doubles on no end, these fish are still young and you would be naive in thinking you can drag them in. The fish to the left although a very good fish its the bottom end of the sizes so you can expect much bigger throughout the season. Getting back to the fishing......fish remain high up in the water column with good catches to all bloodworm patterns, eggs (mainly white) and mini white lures. Snakes are still worth a cast more so on still days when floating lines are not working. Fish of the week goes to Mr Martyn Colligan from Bury with a cracking double caught on a white snake fished from a sink tip line. Other notable catches were Mr Alan Taylor with a returned double caught on a home tied spider and Mr Trevor Robinson with a huge double caught on a orange and white lure (see Facebook page)
