It has been a good start to the year with many anglers getting out with the
unseasonable weather, much better than being snowed in.  The depth the 
fish were being caught  depended on the wind, plenty of fish have been
taken on Diawl bach, Cat, Damsel, Bloodworm, buzzers and various colours of 

Yesterday Keith Johnston from Airdrie lost quite a few fish and then 10 mins 
before he was going to leave he caught a lovely 10 lb Rainbow on a Apps Bloodworm.

This week has been changeable again with the fish just under the surface when there
was no wind and the temperature was 12 degrees, with plenty of fish being caught.

of year it is.

It was an excellent start to October yesterday with a cold morning and lovely sunny day and the same today.    With cooler clear water the fish are still taking a wide variety of flies from dries
to bright sparkly lures.   Most of the fish are still taking quite gently so anglers still have to slow
down for them to take, but of course with the cold nights it will not be long before this will
change as the water gets colder and there is not just as much natural feeding.
