Boxing day saw a great turnout with the sun shining, Chris Micalef from Stockton had the best results catching 20 fish in all using Olive Damsel.

We have seen relatively mild, but unsettled weather over the weekend and Monday, the fishing has though remained good, with anglers using a mix of buzzers and olive worms successfully.
Ben Race from Great Ayton caught 24 fish in all using Buzzers and olive worms and slow figure of eight retrieve.
