 Fish 146 (season 8,033) Returns 37 (1,087)Rod average 3.9(7.3)

The best fish of the week at Ravensthorpe was a 5lb Rainbow taken by Alan Duffin. Alan was fishing a washing line with a f.a.b. on the point and small buzzers from Platform 12 last Tuesday morning. Alan had an excellent morning’s sport taking six fish and coming back for more on Thursday, taking five fish.

It has been a week of mixed sport. The fish have sometimes been tricky to catch on a variety of methods. Floating line with diawl bachs, crunchers and small nymphs have been working; small dries like bob’s bits, hoppers, cdc’s and washing line with black or olive buzzers are also worth trying.

Ravensthorpe is hosting its popular Thursday Evening Boat Club from 6-9pm
