Foremark has fished very well this last week even with some warm and very bright days. With the brighter conditions boats are now beginning to do slightly better than the banks however the banks are still producing some excellent sport with black buzzers and gold head damsels.
It has been so nice over the last few days to see several junior anglers out with their parents or grandparents having the chance to experience our fishing and surroundings. There are some smashing photos on our Facebook page please have a look and see the enjoyment on their faces. www.facebook.com/FlyFishStore
