    Thanks John a nice write up and worth the wait to record your next double figure fish here ,a great fish! This week amazing buzzer activity and surface sport on Havering Trenches most of the day and wild evening rises!! Mainly Tigers on dries all day and rainbows deeper on buzzer but only by a couple of feet . Rod average high for all fishing as feeding is prolific -average 9 per rod with a fair few hitting mid double figure bags. Yesterday saw Trout Fisherman Magazine here Peter Cockwill and Peter Gathercole so watch out for their write up coming soon. Needless to say Peter was surface and sight fishing all day with some very pretty tigers in the mix mainly to griffiths gnat in the margins . Other methods were also working for other anglers damsels and small leaches / tadpoles. Last weekend we had a great Troutmasters fish off for both seniors and juniors where above John came 3rd to David Peters 2nd and winner was Les Plaster who goes on to fish final -well done all! Fishery is looking good now and greenery shooting up ,see you soon!

    Hi Peter,
    I don't know if you can remember this far back but as my Son and I didn't have a very good day you made me a very generous offer that I've never taken you up on. Does it still stand?

    Hi Roger vaguely remember I offered 2 for 1 a few years ago, normally vouchers etc we like to use by in a year but this time ok as was slightly different. Yes let me know the when you coming on fishery phone as I not on here much. Currently fishing is mainly dries and buzzers on top lake crystal clear but a bit of surface weed but all mainly fishable If approach is right! Middle lake catch and keep half deeper down sport on Fry patterns and small nymphs while Stalking Pools much deeper down on snakes and tungsten headed lures. Catch and release end of Three Springs middle lake shut for summer like each June , July and August as release not work there well but fish happy feeding in depths. Remember we now stock Tiger,golden, Sandy ,sparctics and 2 very different types of blue plus Brown trout up to 22lbs and all are to see on Facebook, Instagram Twitter and YouTube not that I can make all to be caught the same day though!so I may be different to others and i open all summer even last summer but last summer mornings were the best time! Iain Barr here tonight with a dry fly tutorial for those booked on it. Check out google reviews also with the social media sites for up to date pictures and words as that a true picture.talkto you soon .. All 3 lakes have an air generating machine so bubbles in all 3 at times which will liven up a bit of harder heat still days , but mainly I installed to combat ice...

    Thanks for that Peter, you have a very good memory. It was actually a free day or 2 for1. I will hopefully take you up on it within the next few weeks. Not sure which option it will be, all depends on whether or not my son wants to come.
    I'll try not to lock my car keys in the boot next time!!

    Fishing rod average for last week 3 fish per rod ,some great fully finned rainbows mainly all grown on by the tell tale shape of fish and size of tails. Please see facebook Thornwood Springs for last weeks pictures or see google reviews for visitors. Best about 5lbs recorded with a mix of Tigers,Goldens and the odd Brown in the mix-not bad for Mid July! Dry fly still working at times with daddies and blue damsels but also fry feeding going on and normal weighted damsels and whiskers catching-red buzzer also had moments.

    What a crazy day Sunday fished like 1 guy Jeff landed 15 fish on the Trenches in middle of the day 2 browns, 3 tigers in his mixed bag all on my favourite blue dry damsel in stock, those that get them catch the most it seems as another visitor from Scotland on same day recorded 10 fish again on a 4 hour ticket....all to see on Facebook Thornwoodsprings as is twitter and Instagram pics of most for all to see! Also some chunky bows up to 5lb taken , rod average still over 3 per rod with most on short sessions! See the updates and follow for more soon..

    My first visit to Thornwood Springs today. Peter, the owner gave me so fantastic advice in the shop and I ended the day with my four fish limit. Had two fish that escaped me (barbless hooks!), but I will get used to them. The lake wasn't that big so you don't have to be a distance caster to get out to the fish. I had my best day ever fly fishing so I will certainly be going back soon.
