On Saturday 24th nine club members fished Earnie’s lake at Sambrook near Newport. Although the weather conditions were quite pleasant a northerly wind did not bode well for the fishing. Most members found the fishing quite hard but what was lacked in numbers caught was more than made up for in size of fish caught. Barrie Jones had two fish weighing in at 7lbs 8oz and 8lbs closely followed by Andrew Worthington with fish of 6lbs and 5lbs 10oz caught on small Hares Ear Booby with a slow intermediate line. In addition new member Geoff Best caught his personal best so he is now busy tying flies for his next trip. Even though fishing conditions were hard with clear water and a strong northerly wind all members enjoyed their day out and look forward to the next trip.
