This Edinburgh Monday holiday outing started well with excellent conditions for top of the water tactics. However, no sooner had we started when the wind began to blow from the West and it was a case of finding some place to shelter, even if it wasn’t where the fish were. Ones and twos were the order of the day, however the ever reliable Trevor Gibson got tuned in, drifting from the Butts towards Tod Hole. He was fishing a midge tip with a combination of blob/cormorant/cat’s and this was good enough to earn him 8 fish. The steadily improving Bob Allan also used a cat’s whisker in Gateside Bay to net 4 fish, while Dougie Goddard plugged away at Sam’s Point with snatchers, finishing with 3 fish.
12 anglers caught a total of 25 fish which included 9 returned.
