Afternoons prove the best for sport.

QUIET mornings have been followed by productive afternoons fishing at Scaling Dam over the past week, with trout coming into the margins to feed in the afternoon sun.

It was non-stop rod-bending action for Sleights angler Harry Noble at the west end rocks as he took his eight fish limit in under two hours using his favourite garlic PowerBait mix on a short cast.

The rough conditions spread the most recent stocking across the reservoir, with the lightly-fished moorside coming alive for Redcar father and son fly anglers, Ken and Andrew Smith.

It was dad Ken who showed his son how it's done to take six on Hot Tailed Dawson's Olive, including a nice 3lb rainbow from opposite the lodge and Groyne area.
