The first burn i hoped to fish today is a moody water, it is though more often or not very coloured days where it is fishable are hard to time , i reckon it's just after a spate as it's falling back to normal level it's at it's best but even then it can be a lottery. It does though have the novelty of a grayling population which is probably the main reason i fish it though i must admit the urge is weaning.I gave it a hour before deciding it was just too dirty, so headed 1/2 a mile along the road to fish a neighbouring burn.
This burn was running perfect. With a slight peat stain.
Here the fish seemed to be that bit smaller though none the worse for it .
but here and there there was still the odd better fish lying in wait .
