ANGLING: What an exceptional week it has been at Blackdyke Trout Fly Fishery.

Perfect conditions have seen the best week of catch results since it reopened for the season. 

Both rainbow and browns have been on form, with Montanas, damsels, daddies, blobs and hoppers all working well. 

Fish are being caught at various depths, so both floating and intermediate lines can be used. The water clarity is excellent and temperature consistent.

There has been wonderful feedback on the quality of the fish and their fight. More of the same is expected this week.

Fishery rules on catch and release and handling of fish must be followed.
