The burn was surprisingly running quite clear, i thought it would have been a bit higher and coloured wih the heavy rain we had at the weekend . Nothing though stirred nor hardly surprising really , as there was no hatch of any sort just a blizzard of midge flying low over the water. There must be a backlog of BWO nymphs waiting for the rivers to get to the appropriate temperatures to hatch .
I mainly fished blind , apart from the very odd riser, first fish was good pounder took the usual a klinkhammer, there was only another 4-5 fish caught the rest of the evening this one i caught on a elk hair cadd iswas a two tone he had a light side and a dark side.maybe from lying in a spot where the sun would catch him at one side ?
|it's darker side|
Really need the hotter temperatures now , weeks and weeks of north easterlies are taking there toll spring weather is still here but the springs menu has practicly run dry .
