It has been an incredible week on Haywards Farm Lake with a lot of fish caught, including some eight double figure specimens – all of which were returned.

The result of the week went to Dean Reid who, fishing with a friend from one of the fishery boats, netted two estimated 20lb rainbows amongst the 36 fish the pair brought to the boat. White snakes quickly stripped back was the method. Boats are always booked well in advance, so if you do want to get afloat please give us a call on 0118 930 3860.

Although snakes have got amongst the fish there were a lot caught on buzzers too and, as is so often the case in the clear water here, covering the water in front of you and then moving quickly on is the order of the day.

Other notable captures on this week‘s roll of honour were made by venue regular, Simon Mann, who landed a couple of very big fish and bailiff, Jeff Brearley, who is pictured below with a cracking 12lb rainbow.
