There is still a great abundance of fly life in and on the water, it has certainly
not been affected by the poor summer, if anything there is more this
year.    This is the first week since Easter we have had a few dry days

the surface.

Sunday 12th July, 2015
The fishery is very quiet today as I suspect everyone thinks the road will be busy
when in fact the roads round about here have been extremely quiet only nearer 
T in the Park are they busy, like the Ryder Cup it has been well organised with
buses taking the people attending in.
 
The fish again have been taking everything from dries to lures mostly on the top
or just under the surface.    With such an abundance of natural feeding a slow
retrieve gives the fish time to take or not giving great sport.

Sunday 5th July, 2015 
It has been one of the most changeable weeks with all kinds of weather 
coming at us.  The fishing has been changing too with the depth and flies 
being changed frequently.   A little bit of colour in the flies seemed to be 
doing well and still fairly slow to give the fish time to decide what to take 
when there is such an abundance of natural feed for them just now and 
the water is clear.

It has been another week of mixed weather and changeable temperatures
giving the anglers some good sport with a wide variety of dries, buzzers,
 diawl bach and many colourful variations of lures.    The fish have been mainly 
taking on the top or just under the surface, but taking it slow when they take
an interest as many are turning away when there is such an abundance of natural
life on the top and in the water for them to feed on.
 
On Friday the Live Line A.C had a good day taking 16 fish for 45 lbs with
