Ifor, you will soon be getting referred to the monopolies commission.
Just keep up the good work you have made a rod for your own back with the quality fisheries you already have.
Good luck.

Iain, I have it on good authority that Ifor is rubbish at Monopoly. Last time I saw him play he attempted to buy The Waterworks with a second hand float tube and a pound of leeks. ;)

Weekly report ending 26/03/17
Tel: 01536 772930

“What a way to start” opening day 2017 saw 89 anglers enjoy great sport at Eyebrook, catching a staggering1102 fish giving a rod average of 12.34!
Bob Margery was first in the queue waiting at the gate, after signing in he headed straight round to pollards jump where he was into fish all day on various fly patterns. Rob Hobson was fishing at Robbos cabin and took 4 quality rainbows for 12lb 8oz. Rob Inglis and Ian Reeves fished the willows for most of the day and both caught well into double figures on size 14 epoxy buzzers fished on a floating line. Steve Lawrence had his best start to a season for some years, fishing between Pollards and the Seat. Reports say he had a fish or a pull nearly every cast ! His best fish of the day was a superb brown trout of around 4lb 8oz which was safely returned. We ask all anglers to return all brown trout to maintain the wild stocks we have here at Eyebrook.
The boats fished equally well as the bank, John Eaton, Bill Presgrave, Arthur Sykes and Stuart Jackson anchored 50 yards out from robbos and caught frequently on their famous skinny buzzers.
The wind stayed the same north easterly over the weekend but temperatures rose, resulting in a tremendous buzzer hatch, anglers reported catching fish full of buzzers. Nick Board and Steve Orton thought they’d be optimistic and try the dries and consequently caught on a CDC shuttlecock and the ‘F’ fly. Jacob Gill aged 8 fished with his father Paul and caught four super rainbows. (See our Facebook page flyfishstore for pictures). Mal Green took the best rainbow of the opening few days, a great silvered over wintered fish with a pristine tail to match weighing in at 4lb 11oz. Eyebrook warden and England international, Lee Henfrey made the most of his morning off and went for a fish down stoke dry fishing a team of buzzers lee enjoyed good sport. Lee will be working at Eyebrook and Draycote and will be available for guiding.
We are allowing rudders & float tubers welcome.

Guiding available with England Internationals Lee Henfrey & Tom Bird.

Lodge will be open from 7.30am for bank anglers to book in with boats available from 8.30am
