The weather forecast for the day was promising, although on arrival it was a bit bright with a quite cool westerly breeze. There were a few fish showing near the jetty as we got ready, but unfortunately they disappeared pretty quickly and in the morning rising fish were seen only in a few areas. Later in the day some cloud cover arrived, but again only a couple of boats encountered rising fish.
Only one of the four boats had a good day and it seemed that that was the one that found the risers, though they seem to have found them all over the loch. This was the best boat by far, crewed by Davie Tyrie and Keith Logan, with a total of 17 fish – 8 and 9 respectively. Daddies, sedges, and other dries were the main killers, but with one or two on boobies as well. The only other success story was Gary Heseltine, who used a fore-and-aft booby cast with Diawl Bachs in between. This earned him a worthy 7 fish. It must be said that the fish caught were in excellent condition, as usual.
The 8 anglers caught a total of 29 fish, 23 of which were returned to fight another day.
