Fishing Report at 5th June 2018

1st trout on fly!

One of many people enjoying an introduction to fly fishing in May.

The last 5 weeks have been filled with truly wonderful days shared waterside with clients. Midlands Fly Fishing took over 100 people fly fishing during May, from beginners wanting to start fly fishing the right way, to more experienced fly fishers using our guiding service. Great to see so many familiar faces returning as well as new clients.

River fishing has been and continues to be superb, all venues are performing well right now, with dry fly the name of the game. Mayfly hatches are a little behind on many waters this year, so if you want to catch some late action to this hatch, get in touch to discuss opportunities.

Stillwater fishing has also been excellent overall. True we’ve had a few tough days when it’s extremely hot in terms of catches, however we firmly believe in ensuring clients learn, improve and have fun. We cannot control conditions or the mood of fish. This ┬ábelief is proven again and again, by clients who let us know how much benefit time spent with us has become to their ongoing fly fishing. Great to hear! The big plus with the weather has been the abundance and diversity of insect life. Most days we’ve been able to look at lure, nymph and dry fly fishing techniques in one session with fish responding positively.

Looking forward to the summer months, Stillwater sport will gradually become more challenging. It’s a time when river fishing is often more productive. On waters like the Derbyshire Wye the often quoted term “dog days of summer” really is a figment of anglers imagination as long as you know how, when and where to fish!

Thanks for reading.
