Bellbrook Fishing Report week ending 7th March 2014

Well it certainly seems like Spring is on the way, T-shirt weather for the first time this year. There's noticeably more bird song and all the trees are beginning to bud. And the fish have certainly been more active this week. Dick Quick from Broadclyst was over the moon with his 4lb 10oz specimen caught on a Montana. Never seen a chap smile so much. Roger Holloway, a regular local, decided to stick with the normals on his visit. He favoured a Cats Whisker, deep, and went home with a full bag. David Harvey, from Landkey, wanted to try his hand on all the lakes and finished the day with two Specimens of 3 & 4lb, he again found a the fish biting deep. Daniel Brammer, from Shillingford, came for an afternoons fishing but had caught his bag of three normal within 2 hrs . . . not sure what his secret was. Another couple of happy anglers were Simon and Geoff Turner who made the trip from Sidmouth and Bovey Tracy respectively. They had, to quote “a very enjoyable days fishing” going home with 5 fish between them from the normal lakes. A damsel with a fleck of blue and a GRHE, 1 – 2 ft were the winning flies. Any questions about the fishery please call Chris on 01398 351292.
