General
 
Some outstanding days fishing this week on all lakes and wind direction helping very well on some days, rain dropped water temp with rainy days fish going of feed for spells then coming back on well, the sunny spells brought temp back up therefore continuing fish feeding well.  
Pellet, and paste proving the best hook baits with sweetcorn, worm, shrimp, mussel and maggot next. Sweet flavoured additives also proving good, both for hook baits and as addition to Angel Pellets for feed try Tutti Fruit or Strawberry. If making paste out of angel pellets try soaking the flavourings onto pellets in a poly bag and put in fridge over night to get flavour to soak through prior to soaking pellets fully for paste.
 
Lookout
Fishing very well with everyone who’s set up correctly catching at almost fish a chuck, some good reported catches even on very wet days.

Bowes
Reported good weights both in numbers of fish and specimen sized have been spread out on all pegs this week, I presume this is because of good S and W warm winds and a favourable high barometer reading most day’s between 1009 and 1021 mb.
Brian Hall fishing pole with paste on the hook took 62 carp with 6 of them a good 10lb, on Sunday Afternoon on peg 40.
Craig Smith from Washington on Monday using Carp Waggler rod and meat on hook had a lovely 22lb common and smaller carp.
Ian Dixon
Sophie Mc Dowell 15 years old had a good 6lb 8oz mirror out.
Steven Mac Milan as part of his number took a 12lb 12oz mirror.
 
Bassetts
Paul Heptinstall in a morning session had 60 mixed fish fishing peg 9.
Andrew Bay fishing peg 7 had over 40 fish on pole using meat or corn on the hook in a half day session.
Everyone on coaching this week caught exceptionally well.
