SPORT: There are loads of big fish coming out of Bank House at the momen. David McCabe took three lovely trout on a Dawson’s Olive in a half day session. David fished the lodge pool on a floating and intermediate line to tempt an 11lb 8oz rainbow a 6lb brownie and a 2lb blue trout. He just needed the elusive tiger trout to complete the Bank House McNab. The best catch went to Mr A Wilkinson who took 16 trout from all over the lake on a white apps worm. His catch included a 13lb rainbow trout and the angler next to him lost one a similar size at the same time.  A hothead damsel caught well for Robin Bamford, he too landed a cracking rainbow that tipped the scales to 10lbs 8oz and Michael Porter had a 9lb 8oz rainbow and a 4lb+ brownie, which also fell to damsel patterns. I was out fishing on Christmas Eve with Vince Williams and we found static buzzers were working well. We weren’t using a bung just long lining them and keeping the line tight, you know one cast every 5 minutes. We had plenty of takes and found that olive or lime green patterns were favoured.
Pictured below are some of the fish caught over the last week. Tight Lines Ben
