Loynton Lakes, Staffordshire

Posted Yesterday at 08:56 AM by rjo

Hi folks,

I am planning a trip to Loynton in the near future. I have never fished it before. My usual Stillwater is Ellerdine.

Has anyone got any tips/advice for Loynton?

Any comments much appreciated.

Observations of a riverkeeper

Posted 17-08-2017 at 09:33 AM by riverkeeper 2469

The season will soon be over and I will have the river to myself for six months, this is when the hard work starts raking redds, catching up brood stock, stripping fish, inqubatIng eggs, habitat management, improving access and may be just may a few days grayling fishing if I am lucky. I would not do any other job it's the best, really its not a job being a riverkeeper, it's a way of life.

A way of life which is changing fast, especially up here in God's country (North Yorkshire)....

First real day of fly fishing and trying to get my casting right. My local lake closes on Mondays, but I didnt know this until I got there, luckily they let me stay and so I could put my casting to the test without being watched by others
I spent the best part of the day just casting and not really hoping to catch anything.
I came away pleased with my practice session, without a single take or bite, only catching the grass behind me a few times

The continuing adventures of the Fluff Club, episode 25

(In which names of the Fluff Boys are disguised and the venue un-named, to protect the innocent; everything else is true).

"Don't ask me 'bout my business
And I won't tell you no lies
Don't ask no stupid questions
And I won't send you away,
But if you want to talk fishin'
Well I guess that'll be okay".
- Lynyrd Skynyrd

The magnificent seven rode again. The Fluff Club fished here only three episodes ago, today's weather...
