Craig Barr with a cock fish he caught while doing a feature for Trout Fisherman magazine at Blackdyke Trout Fishery.

Blackdyke Trout Fishery has come to national recognition with a feature in the latest issue of Trout Fisherman.

Black snakes on a floating line are still the best tactic at the fishery.

The first Bankmasters heat is on Saturday, February 27. Entry forms are available from the lodge or at www.iainbarrflyfishing.co.uk 

It’s a friendly competition, so go along and have a try.
