Weekly Ranger’s review: Brace of Blues for Bill
The first week of fishing has provided some fantastic sport, with Bill Harvey taking four Rainbows and two immaculate Blues of 3lb and 4lb 8oz.
Some anglers have been taking fish on wet flies near the surface but the majority of fish have remained deeper with lures on medium sink lines being the most successful method.
As with neighbouring Grassholme, the changeable wind directions have kept the fish on the move this week, with the downwind banks being the more reliable areas. Anglers who were prepared to remain mobile and look for the fish have enjoyed better results.
