Spent the afternoon there with Hellbound showing me the ropes as a novice and took my first 2 from Priory!

I know it's not a real challenge for you experienced guys but it was great to land a couple of fish and get some casting practice in whilst I was there.

All in all a good afternoon and thanks again to Hellbound for his help. I will return as soon as I can and will eventually progress to the bigger stuff.

First outing for a while.

Fished at Chigboro 8th (October), very sunny though cool wind from north. I started on Home on a pontoon to the right of aerator with a white cats whisker but was getting a fair amount of weed on the fly. Went round to Priory and caught a couple off the top with a Daddy about 1pm then wandered over to Rook. Tried the Cat again but struggled with trying to cast into the wind although I saw a fair number of fish about. Moved back to Priory for the last couple of hours and had a good take on the Daddy but missed it.

Saw a few caught on Home and one on Rook but couldn't seem to get the right fly / method.

Anyone else catching at Chigboro who could comment ?

Yes that's helpful, thank you. I should be back there again next week, work allowing.

Would you fish the buzzer on a NZ method off the daddy's hook bend and what would be a good length to start 6" ?

Thanks again

Nick

i wood fish a small black buzzer size 14-16 NZ method 12" is a good start many fish are in the top ft of water , under a foam daddy is good at this time , if ur geting more takes on the drop move the buzzer up a bit , good spots 2 try as well over on rooks is were the boat is ,just to the left , and down near the rush bed , if they are chaseing lures try a mini humgus , Smile

Managed a few hours today and had a great result. Lovely day to be out warm and sunny with a light breeze.

Started over on Home and had a 2lb rainbow after a couple of casts then a 3lb fish about half an hour later.
Then a bit later I lost another and things went a bit quiet.

Walked round to Rooks and fished the far end into a light breeze. Not much showing but manged a Brown of about 2.5lb, my first still water Brown. A much gentler take than the rainbows.

BTW most of the reeds down there have been grubbed out.

All the fish were on a size 14 black epoxy buzzer fished about 12" under a dry daddy - thanks Hellbound !

Need to get out there soon too. Though with the new arrival and the better half not able to drive for 6 weeks can see it being Dec before i get over there. Made even worse knowing its fishing really well at the moment too. (Hellbound had in his words "A Red Letter Day" last week)
