Bellbrook Fishing Report week ending 10th October 2014

More rain again this week and fresh - almost a frost – mornings too. All this means the fish are getting even more active and this is good news for the fishers. The leaves are starting to fall and so of course the main fly to try has been the Daddy again.

The most successful paring of the week was Alan Jukes and Guy Slabbert from Taunton. Between them they managed to catch their limit and this meant taking home 27lbs 7 oz of trout!

Biggest fish of the week was 7-12 caught by Dave Batchelor of Exeter using a black nymph. It was an unusual fly and clearly an effective one.

We also had local angler Derek Boldry from Oakford manage to land 3 fish from the normal lakes for a very respectable 10-2. Derek’s description of his successful tactic was “white” - a succinct man.

Dave Miller from Torquay had a nice 5lber out of the specimen lake and finished off his day with a further 2 fish for 5-4 from the normals. His tactic was an intermediate line fished slow.
