  1. Frandy. 13/06/18(B.P.Angling Club Outings)

    We haven't fished this cracking reservoir as a club for quite a few years,but I have no doubt that it will be on our list for next season. A fantastic day for most of our anglers with lots of smash takes by hard fighting fish. (even the smaller ones gave a great account of themselves before coming to the net.) All our boats that ventured to the far end of this idylic water were rewarded with a magical day of top of the water fishing on nymphs and dries,contrasted by the guys in the main basin and ...

  2. Rutland 29th May-2nd June,(B.P.Angling Club Outings)

    The weather was hot, maybe too hot for the fish but I was happy.
    What ever I tried, I failed at. My casts were rubbish throughout the day and I was getting frustrated and over-trying it as apposed to doing what I was taught last year..... which incidentally I had all but forgotten about.
