ANGLING: Catches were in double figures at Blackdyke Trout Fly Fishery.

A good restock on November 26 led to a great week’s fishing, with success from the bank as well as the boat at the Hockwold venue. 

Most of the fish were caught just under the surface but also at varying depths right to the bottom. 

Roberto De Block caught 19 off the boat and missed several more on Sunday. 

The best flies were cats whiskers, snakes, Montanas, bloodworm and various lures. 

Trout are responding well to the cold temperatures and, if you dress appropriately, fishing is proving to be excellent.
