A quick note to mention Alan Christopher has managed to persuade eight fish out of the water in his last two visits. A steady retrieve on Cats Whiskers and G/H Daddies did the trick. Well done!
As June 30th looms, there aren’t many fishing days left until we close the trout fishing over the summer. Three and a bit months will pass swiftly for some and drag for others, but like many other trout fisheries in the southern counties, Churn Pool is simply too warm to allow fly fishing – especially catch & release – during the summer. We can happily recommend Farmoor Reservoir and Manningford Fishery as worthy alternatives. Should we get some rain to feed the rivers, it would also be a good idea to pay the River Coln a visit. See you when we reopen on 15th October, if not before!
It’s been great to see some new and past faces on the bank recently. Regardless of the tougher conditions, it’s always good to get out in the fresh air. Well done to Graeme Cheyne on a couple of rainbows on the Cats Whisker recently along with Mr Lochrane who secured another two rainbows on a pink lure. If they’re not after your usual flies, there’s always the option to anger them with something frightening!
For those missing the usual Churn Pool BBQ, stay tuned. Tom will be back with his chefs hat soon.
