WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING THIS WEEK
This Weeks Action
Mike Christie had a creditable catch of eight rainbows while boat fishing recently; Mike’s fish weighed 21lb 7oz and were taken on flies such as loch ordie and balloon caddis, Mike also returned twelve more fighting fit rainbows. Charlie McCormick hosted the Bull Fly Fishers most recent Eyebrook boat competition and many members recorded limit bags. Baz Street of Leicester took eight fine rainbows while drifting the main basin recently; Baz took most of his catch on gold ribbed hares ear nymph, crunchers and daddies. Stuart Bilsdon of Uppingham and Tony Tibbert of Market Overton continue to catch from the boats on daddies and hoppers. Relative newcomer Ian Reeves of Carlton Park caught a nice two and a half pounder and returned two other fish on daddies on a recent boat outing. Association of Major Fishing Club’s members Peter Firth and John Caldwell enjoyed a day afloat at Eyebrook recently and took many good rainbows on dry flies.
The Eyebrook Blue Trout Trophy Was again competed for on Sunday 28th October 2014, a team consisting of Eyebrook regulars challenged The English Disabled Fly Fishers to a friendly boat competition. This year’s match was closely fought as the EDFF top rod Ian Bradfield weighed in seven rainbows for 10lb 15oz. Dave Etty fishing for the Eyebrook regulars also weighed in seven rainbows that weighed 12lb 11oz. The weigh in was down to the wire but the EDFF teams were the eventual winners and weighed in twenty-nine rainbows for 48lb 9oz with the Eyebrook regulars taking just twenty fish for 35lb 2oz. Many congratulations to the EDFF who have now lifted the Eyebrook Blue Trout Trophy on three out of four occasions.
 Eyebrook Pike Trials 2014 The fishery will once again be introducing pike fishing on the 1st October 2014 using lures and sea dead baits only. A number of boats have been allocated on each day throughout October for predator fishing. We do hope that all trout anglers respect the pike fishermen and vice versa, and that these trials may once again prove beneficial and of interest to all parties. For more information and rules regarding predator fishing at Eyebrook go to www.eyebrook.com and click on the predator motif.
 Trout Fishing Tactics and suggested fly patterns
The most successful fly patterns at present includes suspender minkies, black holo buzzers, pheasant tail nymphs, diawl bach, crunchers, gold ribbed hares ear nymph, and silver invicta. By far the best tactics for both the bank and boat are dry flies, which are taking plenty of top quality fish, patterns such as fiery brown bobs bits, natural and orange foam back daddies and Cdc emerger’s are all taking their share of fish. Floating fry patterns such as suspender minkies, booby suspender minkies, ethafoam fry and spondoolie’s are also accounting for some better trout, look no further than the bell, the hawthorns and sams dyke for floating fry action.
Many bank anglers are encountering grown on rainbows that are feasting on roach and perch fry and sticklebacks that are seeking refuge in the remaining weed beds so maybe bring out those polystickle’s an old fry pattern made famous by Dick Walker, for those of you who remember them!
Although the weed is now beginning to die back a little, bank weed cutting operations are ongoing; our aim is too keep the bank accessible in the most popular bank fishing areas of the main basin.
Boat bookings are absolutely essential and there are only a few dates available Friday 3rd, 4th, 5th October 2014 so to book boats or general fishery information call the fishing lodge on 01536 772930 or book boats directly online at www.eyebrook.com

  The Eyebrook Trout Fishery welcomed competitors participating in the 35th Disabled Home International to the fishery this week with England acting as hosts to Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
The fishing proved challenging and the competition was very close following the first days fishing with England holding literally a 7oz lead over Scotland. The fishing tactics were dictated by the conditions and most competitors chose to fish DI 7 lines with boobies, nymphs and blob combinations. The second day’s competition saw the Scots really forge ahead and at the weigh in it was apparent that Scotland had been successful in winning the championship. The Scottish team had accumulated over the two days a total catch of eighty-one fish for a weight of 142lb 15oz, with runners up England and a creditable fifty-four fish for 95lb 9oz. For many great pictures of the 35th Disabled Home International at Eyebrook go to www.fishypics.co.uk

Adam Turner and David Adam of County Durham enjoyed a real red-letter day at the fishery recently catching thirty fighting fit rainbows on mostly dry fly patterns.
Dave Chadwick of Ashley has recently switched tactics and instead of using the indicator and buzzers is fishing a dry Orange Cdc Emerger; Dave took several decent fish from the bank at Robbos Cabin.
  And not to be missed in the July edition of Totalflyfisher magazine features’ Buzzers and Boobies’ where Mike Low looks closely at the flies and methods to employ to make the most of the versatility of a floating line at Eyebrook, and Stan Piecha’s regular Big Interview quizzes Andy Miller, the man in charge at Eyebrook reservoir and finds out that a fox nearly took his life!

 The fishing is presently challenging at Eyebrook, mostly due to the enormous amount of natural food present in the fishery, damsel nymphs, hoglouse, corixa, daphnia, pin fry and evening sedge hatches that have never looked so good for years, and many anglers are taking advantage of the surface sport now on offer.
