Michael Stonebridge’s big catch.

ANGLING: Buzzers proved most successful this week at Blackdyke Trout Fly Fishery.

A mixture of flies worked, depending on conditions, but buzzers were to the fore as 45 anglers caught 85 fish.

Alan McNamara had a brilliant 17 on eggstasy, apps bloodworm, buzzers and cats whiskers, while Michael Stonebridge caught an 8-9lber, which was released quickly with minimum handling.

The forecast is set to be cold but the lake is full of fish and it is an excellent time for bank and boat fishing. Boats must be booked in advance.
