Season ticket holder Bob Collins has opted to fish Pitsford Water for the first couple of hours in the morning. This has given Bob a cooler start and he's taken 11 fish in three sessions, one of these weighed over 5lb and three were between 3 and 4lb. Bob fished Sermans and Holly Bush and caught on bloodworm.

Last week’s hot weather has influenced fishing at Pitsford with fewer anglers wanting to brave the heat which also made catching hard.
Season ticket holder Bob Collins benefited from some early starts and this paid dividends with Bob taking 11 fish in three sessions. One of Bob's fish weighed over 5lb and three others were between 3 and 4lb. Bob fished Sermans and Holly Bush and caught on bloodworm.
