An interesting day with John, hunting late-season risers in the Sandy Bay/Heronry area.
Lake of Menteith
A June day with John Wastle, looking for mayfly feeders. The early cloud quickly burned away to give us a scorcher! Then a day beginning of August. Still a few mayfly about and fish looking for them. However, most of the fish were lying deep in Gateside, due to the previous week’s heatwave.
A blustery, cool day, with Martin Wigglesworth. Very little mayfly to be seen.
A day on the mayfly with Mark Hirst. Good spinner action, p.m.
A day on dries with Jimmy. Mayfly activity starting to get going. Fish quite cooperative. Wind direction less so. Top fly was the ‘Found Link’.
A day with Bob Allan. Mayfly starting to trickle off. Loads of alders, sedges and other stuff – and clouds of gnats and hawthorns.
A good autumnal day and good sport with dries.
Some mayfly action in tough conditions.
A few mayfly coming off, but the fish yet to tune in to them. Hard work with dries in bright sunshine. A few alders provided a bit of sport.
