Average Weight: 3lb 4oz
Best Fish: 11lb 4oz to Ray Constable
Rod Average: 3.9


Lots of good fish have been caught this week, topped by the cracking 11lb 4oz rainbow below, that was netted by Ray Constable. There have been a lot of fish in the 5lb to 8lb range showing too, with most anglers getting among a few fish.

As far as successful patterns are concerned there is a lot of mayfly activity on the lake at present, so do make sure your fly box is appropriately stocked, mayfly fishing is not just for the chalk streams, we have huge hatches here.

The usual Haywards Farm Lake suspects are catching well too with plenty of fish falling to both black and black and red buzzers, damsels and hare‘s ears. Orange blobs, snakes and bloody butchers all scored too.

And, a reminder to everyone fishing with us, don‘t forget to fill in the catch return sheet in the lodge before you leave!
