pre season burn recce

With one or two burns in mind for opening day i thought i would check one of them out today with my dog Clyde. The snow on Monday has all but disappeared from where i live but this wee burn being a bit higher up still looked a wintery picture.

Clyde wasted no time in getting wet by standing on some thin ice!

despite some of the pools being iced up there's still some nice runs to fish

Clyde has a look

its running it's usual slightly murky colour

with that in mind Ive tied a few glister bugs

im not sure how responsive the trout will be with the cold water temperature but im looking forward to finding out, Clyde and i enjoyed our walk anyway,  tomorrow i think we'll check another burn out.
