Blithfield Blobs with Craig Barr
In this premiere episode of Reservoir Masterclass, Craig Barr visits Staffordshire’s Blithfield Reservoir in search of hard fighting spring Trout on the fly. Drawing from long career of competing and coaching for the England fly fishing teams, Craig demonstrates his concepts of matching the hatch, searching the water, the washing-line setup and effective loch-style drifting. When the weather takes a turn, he explores how to force aggressive reactions from the fish with lures like blobs when they go off the feed, leading to some incredible topwater action. This knowledge, paired with unique underwater footage gives vital insight to the habits and behaviours of reservoir Trout. This is a must watch for all serious fly anglers!
