Bank House Fly Fishery has continued to fish very well. There have been great catches on washing lined buzzers with boobies or daddies on the point, on small dries fished in the shadows around the islands and on damsel patterns stripped back high in the water. Various patterns under the bung has also scored very well accounting for some big scores.
I have stocked some absolute monster rainbows into the high teens of pounds and the general stamp of fish is currently good with loads of 3lb+ fish. We have seen a fair few Spartic trout being caught as well as some cracking browns and blues. Tigers have been a bit more elusive, but they are still coming out. If you fancy targeting them, try small CDC dries fished tight to the islands, under the overhanging vegetation if possible.
Here are some reports that have been sent to me from the last week:
Iain Scott had a great day. Iain said that the fishing was hard first thing, but then the fish started to play ball. He had a 9.5lb rainbow and 5-6 lb brown the rainbow was caught on top with a small size 12 dear hair CDC on 7lb line and the brown took a size 12 fab on top when it landed on water. (Pictured) Iain ended up with 20 trout and his mate Darren had 19. Good angling fellers.
Chad Dixon also had a cracking session with 10 trout. He had two rainbows around 6lbs, got stripped down to his backing twice. Chad found a dancer stripped back on a floating line was highly effective. See pics
Richard Bamforth and his son Archie found success on small black dries. Crippled midge, F flies and parachutes all worked well. Well done guys.

Please use the landline 01524770412 to make your booking and to prepay for your session. We are limiting the number of anglers on the fishery to 12 at any one time so there is loads space to fish and to easily maintain social distancing. Many thanks.
