New season resevior trout fishing

Recommended Posts

Just wondering with only a week till Grafham and other reseviors  open where everyone will be fishing this opening week and season in general? For me Grafham is my main water with occasional trips to Rutland and thinking might give pitsford a try this year .

Never felt like fly fishing until I could lose the coat and roll up the sleeves. Used to fish Pitsford from the boat when living in Oxon and always enjoyed it but preferred Draycote.

I lost the coat and rolled the sleeves up, shooting in January.

Not exactly sure yet but will either be Thrybergh or Ladybower reservoirs. Definitely on the Tweed mid March though

hello, no just been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder , no fishing for 6 months

No shooting either, I suspect  ?    All I can say is, do any exercises they suggest.  I ended up with an operation, but after almost 2 years it is back again.  Good luck.

I was fortunate enough to have both 20 and 28 bores, plus a 12 bore auto. My Surgeon was a shooter, so I followed his advice as best that I could.

Would it be feasable to learn casting with the other arm?

I did it several years ago.

It didn't take long and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Hi Ferret, looking forward to the new season and hope we can share a boat again soon.

I'm trying a new syndicate on a 5 acre farm reservoir this season. Will be interesting to see how it goes and hoping we don't have another summer of drought but it's not looking too good so far.

Piggin typical though, just checked the weather forecast. From Saturday 2nd windy and showers😡

Yes can't wait for season but think my start will be delayed by the wind was hoping to fish Grafham next week but doesn't look to promising.  KFC we will share a boat hopefully a couple of times this season and have as much sucess and we did last time.  Good luck with your new syndicate 

 

Hoping to get to pistfords a few times this season as well

My father in law is a mental keen fly fisherman with a season ticket for Rutland and Grafham - He's been saying that Pitsford is the only place delivering the goods

Anyone fish Ravensthorpe?

Looking to get an early day there in April - from the Bank rather than Boat - if anyone can talk to the banks to try, patterns, etc, it would be helpful

 

Thanks

I heard Ifor had folded Foremark, has he given up Draycote and Thornton as well ?   I enjoyed Foremark and Draycote and had some big fish along the dam wall.

Do you know if they do lessons at ladybower? I've never fly fished before and would like to have a go at it

Hi Steve. I’m not sure if they do lessons but the staff at the lodge are always very helpful. If you contact them I’m sure that they will point you in the right direction. We have a club based at thrybergh reservoir in Rotherham where someone will gladly show you the ‘ropes’ free of charge. The club meet every Thursday evening between 7 and 9
