Unfortunately, conditions were somewhat disappointing for our first visit of the season to Glencorse. It was a very bright day and although the air temperature was good, the water was suffering murkiness and low temperature, following the recent snow melt. Despite a few buzzers hatching at various points in the day, and some beetles on the surface, it was definitely a sunk line day and even then fish were very difficult to come by.
Top rod with 4 fish was Trevor Gibson who was pulling a green hottie on a ghost tip on the roadshore. Just behind him with 3 each were: Tom Steven – figure of eighting a black tadpole on a DI-3 near the boathouse; Ed Green – slowly figure-of-eighting a small black and green fly on a DI-3 at the road shore; Dougie Skedd – slowly figure of eighting a minky on a DI-2 near the boathouse, and John Miller – slowly pulling black and green tadpoles and a goldhead Viva on a floater near the burnmouth.
Sadly there were a good number of blanks and we can only hope for better conditions on our other outings at this venue. A total of 22 fish were netted by 17 anglers.
