Off to a flying start at Ravensthorpe!!


As our fly-fishing year begins each spring, we often start off with a visit to the ever-popular and well-stocked Ravensthorpe reservoir in Northamptonshire. Always guaranteed to get your season off to a flier and this year was no exception with bumper bags of fish for many of our members.

There are few places that can produce top fishing every time and I’m sure there will be times in the middle of summer when even Ravensthorpe slows down, but early spring is a great time to get into fly-fishing on reservoirs with plenty of clean, fresh fish ready to oblige even the humblest beginner… and so they did!  It was particularly good to see new members to the section doing so well for their first outing (Well done Geoff Greenhill… works well under instruction Steve Owen says!) and everyone enjoying fantastic sport in mild early spring conditions.  Some of our numbers maximised the opportunity to catch so many fish that it was a bit unfair on the poor old things in the end, but the vast majority went back safely to fight another day… the trout I’m referring to of course!

So, it was an excellent way to start the season without the pressure of competition; well, some were privately settling a few scores I think, with everyone trying different methods and just relaxing out on the water.  Time to get your eye in again, or your casting arm, back into the swing of it for the hectic few months of fishing that lay ahead.

At the end of the afternoon, after an enjoyable day’s sport, many dropped in for a drink at a local pub on their way back home, to reflect a little longer on what had been yet another great day out fishing with the West Midlands Police Fly-Fishing Section.
