Sharpley Springs Fishing Report

The usual buzzer techniques proved effective until the cold snap, when things turned decidedly bloodwormy.
Both olive and black midge pupae imitations fooled fish prior to the mid-week coolness whilst during it blacks and traditional blood-red worms and pinkies were the answer. A static or dead-slow retrieve approach was the best.
With the exception of those couple of days olives and cinnamon sedge were again in evidence during afternons with olive shuttlecocks and slimly-dressed green f's good at fooling the wind drifting adults-though it was usually essential to move them down-wind at the correct speed using careful line management.
