The Stocks Dry Lines Open: This Saturday August 12th

We are holding our annual open dry lines fly fishing competition on Stocks on Saturday August 12th.
This is one of the friendliest and most enjoyable matches of the season.
The competion is split into two 4hr sessions; the first will be fished from 9:30am to 1:15pm. There is a break for a buffet lunch, we then recommence fish at 2:15 and the match finishes at 6:00pm.
There will be prizes for the 1st and 2nd places in each session and the overall winner across both sessions.
The cost of entry is just £15 on top of your fishing fees and that includes your lunch and the chance to win some great prizes.
One of the best things about this competition is that it’s two matches in one day and no individual angler can win more than one prize, so you have every chance of winning something.
If you would like to enter please call the lodge on 01200 446602.

Ps. Just Stocked some cracking fish today, averaging over 3lbs. 🙂

"A Master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."
~Francois Auguste Rene Chateaubriand

catch and release trout best practice Here

So long as we all fish within the regulations, whether we are catch-and-release anglers or catch-and-keep anglers, that's just fine. But I hope more of us start thinking more in terms of quality than quantity. Maybe catching 10 trout on dry flies is better than pounding 50 fish in a day by running a synthetic worm and egg with a nymph rig beneath a strike indicator.

The weather staying warmth and with  good cloud cover made December a very good fishing month, fishing on both lakes is excellent with anglers enjoying sport to all fly fishing tactics with many good catches being made.

Methods used

Corixas, buzzers, diawl bachs, crunchers & cats whiskers. Fishing best in shallows to intermediate lines, bright orange when the conditions are clear & bright is paying of fished deep.
