Noticed on JH's facebook that the lake still needs 5 ft or so to come up to top level.

I see they've yet to publish the season starting dates. I applied for opening day boats on Jan 2nd as normal & have yet to get a reply, which has arrived within a few days of then on previous years.

A quick question on last year.
Did anyone catch or hear of any big perch being caught, say three pound plus?
They are in chew somewhere as I have seen at least two which looked at least that size and no doubt you regulars know more about it than a tourist like my self. Very Happy

FF - they were catching them for a pastime at the back end - double hookups and all sorts.

Have a look through some of these pictures https://www.facebook.com/BristolWaterFisheries/photos_stream

As Doug says Peter, the back end was a perch-fest. Never mind 3lb, 4's were on the cards......

Anyone fly tying tomorrow?

Just received the Feb edition of Flyfishing & Flytying and there is mention of a four pounder on the fly in there ( page 15).
Also and artical on Dr Bell, Doctor of the Stillwater nymph ( at Blagdon).
That green nymph on page 43 is uncannily like the fly that did a lot of damage for me on Blagdon a few years ago.
Happy days big perch and great nymph fishing.

I've also just had F.F & F.T. arrive, & don't recall that I've ever met Mr.Freer, the author of the Dr.Bell article, I maybe wrong though. There was a lady who served behind the bar of Redhill Social Club where Bristol's F.D.G. meets, who was one of Dr. B's patients many years ago. That's about the only person I'm aware of with any direct contact with him.
