At first there was a breeze blowing across the reservoir from the west which gradually became more northerly. No rain was forecast and around lunchtime it quite suddenly became warmer. Anyway, at the 10am start BobP decided to start fishing near the Discovery Centre on the west shore where he lost one trout before returning to Longstone where he did land one 1.25lb rainbow. Personally, I did not have a single 'touch' all day. After the weigh-in at 3pm where Bob's was the only fish, I tried over the other side of Burrator at the boat pontoon and below the Discovery Centre without contacting anything at all.
