Archive for September, 2011
It’s been some time since we added an update to the site,
but the summer months and fruitful carp fishing has tempted us to chin wag over
a cider rather than tap away on a blog. Some great carp have been making an
appearance this year with a few personal bests recorded.
However, it won’t be long before the beepers and tepees are
packed away to make way for the country gents that are fly fishermen on October
15th. We greatly look forward to catching up on the bank to see
where you dabbled your rods over the past few months. With the last couple of
years seeing a steady start to the second part of our season, it’s anyone’s
guess as to how 2011 will unfold. What we can promise is a great stocking
programme with pristine fish to suit what is one of the few catch & release
fisheries in the area. Let’s hope for some cooler weather, but hopefully not
another freeze at the start of December again. Fingers crossed – the fishing should be great.
In the meantime, it may be worth sorting out some flies to
the Autumn. A good starter for advice would be the monthly comics. There’s
usually a few cracking patterns to try to replicate amongst the pages. Of
course, the http://simplyflyfishing.co.uk/phpbb/
forum is another great place to share some knowledge. Log on and mingle.
If you prefer people to pixels, the Wroughton Working Mens
Club is worth a visit as the North Wiltshire Fly Fishing Club return on 7th
September after their summer break. Although a small band of folk, they are
always willing to donate their time and materials to get people producing great
patterns on the tying vice. With the
added bonus of ‘club price’ beers, it’s well worth a visit. Catch them every
Thursday evening in the upstairs meeting room from 8:00pm.
