Toft Newton Reservoir: 77 rods caught 360 trout for a rod average of 4.68.

Floaters with Nymphs and small Booby on the point is doing particularly well and intermediates with small Boobies inched back also taking their share.

The two key points to remember are not to cast too far out and use a very slow retrieve.
