ANGLING: There have been mixed results coming out of Blackdyke Trout Fly Fishery, despite a restock on May 5.

Daddies, top hat buzzers, other suspended buzzers and emergers have all had success, while hawthorns have started to be effective too, as well as black beetles on the surface. 

Mayfly are hatching around the lake and a few anglers have caught with them. 

Buzzers and bloodworm have still had their moments, even though most of the fish have been taken right off the surface or just below.

Saturday saw the Hockwold complex host a charity event organised by Stephen Lambert and Steven Coots. It raised £1,300 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and volunteer John Skoyles was there to receive the funds.

The event was won by Richard Ly, ahead of
runner-up George Collins. 

Thanks were expressed to everyone who participated and also those who did not attend but gave a donation.

It proved to be an excellent day, despite fishing being tough.
