Well what a picture. The huge grin says it all. Here is Lynda Ector with her 13lb 2oz Rainbow caught on her last cast yesterday evening.( Had to take the picture in doors due to the poor flash on the camera). Lynda landed the fish on the Swan Neck Pool using a sinking line and a Black and Green Leech. An absolute pearler of a fish, Fully Finned, pristine tail and put up as described by Lynda, as one of the best fights off a fish she has had in over 30 years of fishing. Top angling!!!

Top Rod on Saturday was Derek Howard who landed 11 fish using a sinking line and a Black Leech. Derek took most of fish off the Swan Neck Pool fishing from the double peg.

Top Rod for a Monday yet again was Luke Stanley who landed 10 fish off the Railway Pool this week. Luke fished a Black and Green Leech on a midge tip line to take fish up to 7lb.  Geoff Hadley also paid us a visit  for a Monday afternoon session. Geoff managed to land 6 fish also off the Railway Pool and dropping a few fish off at the net. Geoff caught on Buzzers and Cormorants using a floating and a slow intermediate line.
