He stayed at the other end of the boat but you know what Italians are like - he kissed the 4.5lber instead.Well Doug ''Good Things Come To Those Who Wait'' reads like a real red letter session.To quote ZZ Top ''you need legs and know how to use them'' well done mate.No kisses from Pino I hope.
Looks like you had a great time. We have been going at least once a fortnight since Farmoor opened up again and the fishing has been second to none with fish quality as good as you will find anywhere in the country.
As far as I know a lot of the sport has been on buzzers high up in the water generally. Most of the fish have been coming fairly close in with a lot of takes about 30 - 40 ft out from the bank.Didn't realise farmoor is only 90 minutes up the road from me. Never fished a venue of this size before and it seems quite intimidating.
That being said, I would like to make the trip soon.
I intend to fish from the bank with a 7wt. I honestly have no idea of the best approach so any pointers would be hugely appreciated. I've got a few buzzers, lures, large dries and even a blob someone gave me!

A pal of mine went back end of last week and caught his using a very small mini booby on the point holding everything up just under the surface with two black holographic buzzers fishing high in the water. He found Letting everything come around on the wind and just mending and keeping in touch with the line gave him the best results.
However there is no substitute on the day for searching the depths though.
I am by no means an expert and hopefully BobP will see your post, as he is a local expert and offers better up to date advice for you than I ever could, nevertheless I hope my reply may help.
Particularly if you blank, it will make me feel betterDon't forget to post up your results even if you blank! Have a good one.
