An absolutely exceptional day all around today! The change in the weather made for a cracking days fishing, with fish clearing showing, party when we got a bit of intermittent cloud cover. A really lovely looking & surprizingly warm day for a cast. Tarn regular Wullie Crawford was on form fishing wee Apts patterns today. Amongst his tidy haul, he lost a stoater of a fish that shot off with his dropper after breaking the surface to wave back 'ta ta' with its big tail! Lol. A lot of very nice fish caught today. Amongst those landed & returned was a resident brownie, tempted to a wee Damsel variant by Jammy George Burns.
A mixture of flies working today, however both the morning session & afternoon fished pretty equally well.
No clubs or comps on this weekend & we are currently fishing until 8:00pm.
Well Wullie landed his best days fishing yesterday & had a good day today also. With a wee hand from Wullie, his pal Gus ended up with his best days fishing with 17 to the net, loads losts between the two of them & a big one that got away. ha ha ha. A few different flies working, notably Damsel lures & Pink Apts this morning. However some good hatches & flat calm waters this afternoon signaled nymph time. The Ministers flea proving an undeniable favourite with the trout the rest of the day. One of Paul Buchanan's wee notable inventions.
No clubs or comps on this weekend & hopefully I should have the dates for the SANA Bank National finalised soon so I can start taking names for the heats!.. Tight lines wherever you manage to escape to this weekend folks!..
