  2. hey barnie did you have any luck here?? last time i went at the end of the summer they had drained 2 of the four trout lakes? had some great days there at the beginning of the summer .. got my first carp on the fly here too. was meaning to nip up there before the season starts to check it out see what the 2 lakes was looking like?
  3. I wanted to catch as many different species of fish as possible.. i did ok got stuck on fly fishing in the summer couldnt stop wanting to go lol i had a few good chub early on also had my first carp on the fly rod weighed 6lb2 i really wanted a tench and a barble last year luckily i got a good tench from a unexpected source but i never did go for a barbel or a pike. my new targets will be to catch a chub on my birthday as i did last year and to catch a barbel some more carp on the fly rod and a double figure trout.
  4. just thought id share we went up there 2 weeks back just for a look and they have drained 2 of the effected lakes and seem to be making it better.. the bailiff told us work should be finished and restocked within six weeks.
  5. ive been to barlow a few times fly fishing but over the last 2 month it really has gone down hill.. first few times fished this place had some real nice fish but about six weeks ago we went as we made our way to one of the lakes we so trout looking like it was dieing in the water and had some white mould on it, we fished that session had about 3 trout out and they was all covered in lice. we went back about 3 week back and all the fish we saw was all moldy. a chap we spoke to said there was nine anglers the day before that caught nothing... no fish were showing it was full with weed .. so we decided to leave it packed up and left.. this place was immaculate when we first went at the beginning of the season now its like no one bothers with it and the fish in really bad condition not to mention the grounds itself didt look like it had been looked after all overgrown.. its a real shame. going to toft newton next week hoping for a better day there ...
  6. Just wanted to start a thread just on fly fishing in genral.. as you know im just getting into fly fishing so know very little on local beats on the don that offers newbies like me to have a decent amout of room..lol.also please post the patterns that have worked for you recently. So far ive waded the strech on samon pastures had 2 good size brownies out few smaller all on (i think) parrachutes? and ant fly? i heard theres some good streches at outibridge and middlewood any info on where to acces these would be great.
  7. why is this a problem??? is it because they not regulated so to speak? just intrested
  8. had another session at barlow today brilliant between two of us we had 19 fish today. weather was perfect when i went other week it was hot and was hard fishing today was unreal to me best so far.. it did take me most of the morning to shoot out a decent cast but before then i had already had 2 out.. also couldnt belive we had the lakes to ourself most of the day on an overcast saturday..bonus!
