A slow week for Foremark this last week we are still suffering a little from the hot bright weather. The best fishing at the start of the week was to fish very deep in open water using big black lures & snakes. However, the fishing started to improve towards the back end of the week with fish moving up in the water with intermediate lines and slow sinking line worked the best fishing on long drifts in the main basin.
On Tuesday Heanor anglers and season ticket holders Messrs Worley & Spence had a god day with 11 fish to the boat and Mr. Marriott boated 5 fishing a D I 5 with white & Green muddlers. Wednesday saw Mr. Scragg boat 5 fish using a fast stripped weighted snake pattern while Thursday saw Mr. Ashford, a Derby County ticket holder, boat 5 on a Green & black lure, again stripped fast on a sinking line. Worst day of the week was Friday and it was left to Scott Wilson to boat 3 fish using a cat’s whisker booby at some depth. Saturday and Sunday fished hard but Ricky Cotterell managed 4 on Saturday and Scott Wilson boated 6 on Sunday.
