We didn’t have many anglers braving the horrendous weather last week.
There were 6 boats out over those days with 9 rods, 3 fish were kept, weighing 13½ lbs, and 9 fish were returned. Fish were taking Blobs, mini snakes, and various damsel patterns.
The best catches during the week were by Francis Donnolly fishing from the bank keeping 2 for 6 lbs (one weighing 3½ lbs) and returning 1. Stuart Kelly on Thursday returned 3 trout and 2 pike, all taking a humungous. Des O’Connor managed to catch 1 in his 4hr session, he was delighted with his 5½ lbs rainbow taken on a pink & orange blob.
Saturday saw Linlithgow Rose FFC out with 3 anglers returning 5 fish using fast glass and sink-tip lines with mini snakes and a damsel pattern which was taken by a 14 lb Brownie. Wilson Hoggan out for a couple of hours kept a 2 lb rainbow using a Di5 line and a booby humungous. Most of the anglers were back in by 1:30pm feeling the bitter east wind, only Ricky Wilson stayed out longer and managed to catch that big Brownie with his sink-tip and a damsel - see photos.
A few boats braved it on Sunday, Mr Appleton out on his own returned a 2½ and a 4 lb fish, Mark Lawton struggled to find the fish, only managing 1 weighing 3 lbs to the net.
Let's hope we have warmer dryer days ahead so we can all get out fishing.
