Warm Weather Fishing Tactics & Summer Special Offer

With more beautiful weather forecast for a little while longer yet what better time to brush up on those warm weather fishing techniques. Anchor Lake looks stunning and fishing incredibly well. Although anglers have been successful throughout the day many are choosing to fish during the cooler parts of the day with some people even booking in a 5.30am arrival time or fishing well in to the cooler evenings. If you would like to take advantage of the cooler mornings or evenings then please call Sue to book in.

Anchor Lake is looking stunning. Martin Gillman is pictured fishing under the Willow Tree, taking full advantage of the cooler evening temperatures, and landed five fish.

Warm Weather Tactics

With the warm weather continuing the ideal method to fish in the top 4’ now is a washing line style set up. Using a 12’ leader, a blob on the point and Buzzer/Diawl Bach on the dropper, spaced 6’ apart combined with a nearly static retrieve has resulted in plenty of those lovely summer fish coming to the net. Blobs could also be changed for a Booby (although not for Catch & Release fishing).

Jane Young visited on a particularly hot day and after changing tactics had caught three stunning fish by lunchtime. As well as leaving a lovely  review on Facebook , Jane commented  “Thanks to a masterclass from Nick! Thank you - Brilliant Day”
