Mains burn

22nd June
With the main rivers in spate, few options were available locally. The mains though was carrying more water but it didnt look that dirty, so i decided to take the dog and wee burn  rod out for a wander tonight . There is'nt much of the burn thats accessible at this time of year most is very overgrown with fronds of grass breaching the stream . But there are a few pools, one in particular , where ive had loads of fish his season , produced this fat wee trout, on a glister nymph a cracker for the burn.

 That was my lot on a nymph tried the bugger but nothing then i put on a big turk variant, and got a offer, but nothing else took in that wee pool. So i headed downstream , to a few other bit's i know. Alfie was finding it difficult to keep his paws dry.
I stuck with the dry and got another and missed another two.  And that was it i'd ran out of fishable water, a good way to spend a hour.

  1. I've been meaning to have a cast at this wee burn but I never seem to get round to it. Nice to see fantastic wee wildies in there and doing well.
