The venue for a lovely afternoon among the Belted Galloway’s …

 

A 5lb winter Blue …

A lovely 6lb February Rainbow …

Having spent the best part of a day and a half sorting out the fly tying room and preparing a classic salmon fly frame, an afternoon in the sun blowing away those winter Blues was the order of the day. And hey presto, the first fish of the day, a lovely 5lb Blue trout. Although the stocking is with Triploids, this fish, in fine condition was clearly holding a lot of spawn. The Rainbow, much more sleek than the Blue was also in beautiful condition. I would like to say they were caught on dries (there was the odd fish rising) but alas, a Cats Whisker was the culprit. With half a dozen more chances, the fishing dried up about 3 pm. But I had a great day.
