A major fish loss was averted by swift action on the bottom lake at East Tuddenham by the Environment Agency following a phone call asking them for advice by Norfolk & Suffolk Flyfishers’ Society chairman Tony Hull.

“Within hours of my phone call, Fisheries Officer Kevin Grout was on site, immediately ordering in three more aerators as well as lending us a dissolved oxygen meter and teaching us how to use it,” he said.

“Anyone who queries how our licence money is spent should have been here at the lakes to see them swing into action so quickly, not just with scientific advice but also with practical help too and it’s very reassuring to see that they see a small club lake like ours being just as important to them as one of our major waterways.”

The top lake is providing a bit of sport with Andy Morgan winkling out a few on a blob fished up against the weed beds, which augers well for Saturday’s Try the Fly session.
