This outing was rearranged, after the original date was postponed due to storm Babet. And we were blummin’ lucky with the weather, given Storm Ciaran and all that was happening elsewhere this time! Not just that, but the forecast was for a fresh northerly with some rain, and we got ‘light and variable’ and dry…Details

A decided dip in the temperature since our outing to the Watch! A drop of 12-13C in under 2 weeks! However, that was tempered by a cracking ceiling all day long, and a westerly breeze that was never stronger than a decent fishing ripple. The reservoir must have been near top water, given the awkwardness…Details
Mel Mitchell reports… In keeping with all the recent sunny, warm weather we have been having, it was another beautiful early morning drive over the Lammermuirs and down towards Longformacus.

The conditions were very welcome, compared to the strong winds we experienced on the previous outing. I was out with Jimmy Anderson and we…Details

Well done to all those teams that have qualified for the final. The results suggested that the fishing had become progressively more difficult over the week. …Details
After a summer pause, our outings kicked-off again at the Watch. July was a fairly wet month and August started off in much the same form, with the forecast suggesting more heavy showers during the day. From a loch-style fishing perspective this has delivered the benefit of plentiful fresh water to keep our lochs and…Details
The day started breezy with an odd shower about. The water had thankfully cooled down from its spell of being over the limit for the fish being on top in the shallows. I measured it about 2 feet down at 19 C. The one thing we were not sure about was what the hot spell…Details
