This was another new venture for the club as it was our first attempt at the unusual Sunday session on The Lake, which is from 12 noon until 7.00 p.m. On our regular Saturday session we sometimes have to leave the water just as the rise is starting, and it was hoped that we might benefit from fishing through into the evening.
Conditions didn’t seem to be great and, with one exception, not a lot of fish were caught. Dougie Skedd tuned in to what was required however, and had a phenomenal catch of 20 trout on dry heather flies. His successful areas were round about Arnmach Point and in Gateside Bay. Adrian Coats put in a rare appearance to finish second some way back, but still with a creditable performance of 6 fish on dries and Diawl Bachs, mainly from Gateside Bay. He was partnered by Bob Allan, who had 3 fish on dries – heather fly and parachute dry.
13 anglers weighed in 16 fish and returned 27.
