Feature day for Trout Fisherman at Loynton
Long awaited visit to Loynton Trout Fishery in Staffordshire to do a Trout Fisherman feature and linking up with Peter Gathercole.
Steve Yeomans is the fishery instructor and it was a real pleasure to meet him and use his extensive knowledge of the fishery. Lovely location with an excellent cafe overlooking the lakes which are fished mostly catch and release with, it seems, nothing put in of less than three pounds.
This feature will be in the magazine in the New Year and I sure would like to go back there and only wish it wasn’t three hours by road.
On the way back Sue and I headed for Northampton and a meeting for Mid Northant’s Fly Fishers to give them a talk on grayling fishing and the majestic Lake Strobel in Argentina. This is the club whose President is Bob Church and it was his 80th birthday a couple days later.
We finally got home sometime after midnight having set off before six am so just a little weary in the shop the next day.
