Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Fishing Reports -

TROUT FISH­ING has been quite good, with sport on dry-flies and Spi­der pat­terns. I have heard of no salmon or sea-trout catches, but if we get a few good spates fish may start run­ning. The Northum­brian Water wild reser­voirs have been pro­duc­ing some good sport. Both Cow Green and Selset are well drawn down, while Balder­head has held a good level. I fished Cow Green in mid-may and af­ter a quiet morn­ing fish be­gan to rise well to a hatch of buzzers. A to­tal of 33 trout were landed from noon to 3 pm. The ef­fec­tive flies were Bibio, Kate Mclaren, Black and Pea­cock Spi­der and Zulu. Colin Storey, my fish­ing com­pan­ion, had eight to 12 inches on sim­i­lar flies. These fish were caught in the top bay near the in­com­ing in­fant Tees and off the banks of Zulu Point. – D. N. C.
