In knew you were gong to say that shropshire lad.Bob will advise you and we may even get feedback from tbs on his trip today.
Like you Maruta I'm finding my way there. I believe the conventional wisdom is a leader of around 18' if you can manage it. When I went last week I just fished with a single fly (nymph). That's because I wanted to keep things simple to start. If you can manage it, one dropper is probably a good idea.
No real need for lures as such, nymphs seem to be the order of the day. Likewise, a floating line is all that's required, no need for a sink tip as such.
The experts will no doubt put me right. Hoping to maybe head up there later in the week myself.
I have to say two of us went yesterday and to be honest we had a bit of a mare.
There was definitely no shortage of fish in either No1 or No2.
We had 4 and 3 fish respectively coming on a mixed bag of buzzers or bery small booby’s across the top on a fast retrieve.
The most successful method I saw yesterday was an old boy (local) who used a team of buzzers under a what looked like a huge Polystyrene Float and a heavy sacrificial fly. He was only casting out a couple of rod lengths letting the sacrificial fly anchor everything in the Fish Highway that BobP was talking about. He was litterely waiting and getting his fair share of fish.
As I say I am definitely no Farmoor expert as yesterdays results show and neither my mate of myself would consider we were on it yesterday. We have had days when we have been, but yesterday definitely was not one of them and it was clearly down to us not the fish As they were 5here in abundance. They simply outwitted us, so I look forward to Bob updating us hopefully as I’m sure he will be far more informative than me.
Sorry to disappoint !!!
