Sharpley Springs Fishing Report July 25th 2011

Although well stocked with doubles this week the big fish have been the most challenging with a 13lb 5oz Blue being caught with a Black Fritz by Dave Robson from Seaham. Adam Brown residing in South Shields took a 7lb 1 oz Rainbow using a Grey Zonker. The evening fishing from 6pm to 10.30pm provide the best sport of the day with Peter Appleby from Bishop Auckland releasing 11 trout as the sun sets.
Bill Hope from Sunderland released a naturalised Brownie at 4 lbs. Nathan Bryant from Dunston netted fish to a total of 18 lbs.
Rod average 3.1


For dry fly sport the hatches of midge that occur early and late in the day can be relied upon. Cdc emerger buzzers are generally the most effective,with olive shuttlecocks still the best. In the evenings and,indeed, throughout the day to a lesser extent,dry sedges can attract trout. Like with the buzzers,cdc patterns are excellent and the traditional deer hair imitations shouldn't be ignored either. Pulled wet sedge pupal flies are unbeatable as the evening light is lost. Damsel nymphs and buzzer pupae large and small are go-to flies in the absence of an obvious hatch and the resident brown trout continue to offer good marginal stalking. Fly box;
