It has been a good week with anglers catching fish on dries, with a bit of bright colour
and a sparkle to attract the fish away from the natural feeding. The evenings are
very short now with the darkness coming in much faster than other years.

The water is still warm with an abundance of feeding so again you have to attract the fish
with something bright and different and keep changing the retrieve.

It has been another very mixed week with all weather, but I think the wind today
should start the cooling down of the water. The fish are still being very fussy,
cruising round the edges and taking something bright and sparkly, different
from the abundance of natural feeding which Is on tap whenever they want it.
Yesterday the Bonnybridge AC had 24 fish for 75.1/2 lbs with Jim Brown
taking the heaviest basket with 4 fish for 14.3/4 lbs on a Fab.

It has been a fair week with the fish moving all around you but being very particular
about what they take, very frustrating at times but patience is always rewarded. Dries and
lures have been catching with a very slow to static retrieve most of the time. With such an
abundance of natural food and the warm water you can't blame the fish for being fussy.
A bit of colour and sparkle seems to attract them when it is like this.
Yesterday morning the Falcon Club had a good social day catching 22 fish for 77.1/4 lbs with
Gregor Paterson taking the heaviest basket with 3 fish for 12.3/4 lbs.
