Wistlandpound Fly Fishing Club members fished their April Trophy Competition at Wessex Waters Clatworthy Reservoir where all members competing landed some top quality trout. A cold brisk easterly wind put the trout down deep with most fish caught deep using boobies or lures. Whilst the fishing proved to be more challenging than expected the quality of the fish caught made the effort well worth well while with full tailed rainbows testing everyones tackle. One fish estimated at over five pound slipped the hook at the net whilst a good number of the fish caught were between 3lb and 4lb 8oz. The biggest trout fell to Colin Combes weighed in at 4lb 8oz and was part of the only five fish bag of the day that secured victory.
1st – Colin Combe – Five Rainbows – 12lb 15oz
2nd – Dave Mock – Four Rainbows – 12lb 12oz
3rd – Wayne Thomas – Four Rainbows – 10lb 15oz
4th – Dave Eldred – Three Rainbows – 7lb 8oz.
