Wellsfield Trout Fishery

All three ponds fished well again this week, for fly fishers and bait anglers.  The weather was much more settled this week and provide good sport for man anglers throughout the week.  Springtime appears to be on the way and fish are a bit more active in all the ponds.

FISH OF THE WEEK: A nice cracking 11lb Rainbow Trout caught by D Cairnes (Moodiesburn) in his bag of 3 fish for 17lb.  See photo below.

The fishery is now taking Club bookings for the 2013 Season.  Please call 01324 822800 or email: fishery@wellsfield.co.uk to make your club booking and secure your outing date.

Best flies this week: Olive Dancer, Claret Damsel, Black/Green Fritz, fished with a sink tip and long leader, or a slow intermediate fly line. Best Baits: Worms and Maggots, Powerbait and small Mepps spun at depth.
