ASHINGTON’S Hirst Park Trout Ticklers braved the weather at Derwent Reservoir on Saturday for their fourth outing of the season.

Despite the wind picking up at times, several junior members tried fly fishing and Kacey O’Grady’s perseverance paid off when she landed a 2lbs 08oz rainbow on the fly. She also landed the heaviest fish of the day at 3lb 4oz.

Lewis Robertson also had a cracking day, landing an eight-fish catch limit to win a day’s free fishing, courtesy of Northumbrian Water, for the heaviest bag.
