    Where is ‘Chicken Legs’ on Menteith?

    Thanks for the replies guys. Col I’m hoping to use a couple of the flies you recommended. Hopefully the evening shift is good timing for some dry fly work. PS believe a good friend of mine, George McGhee, knows you. Len

    Loch Leven for first time

    Had an interesting if hot day on the Loch. Now know where some of the basic hot spots are. Thanks to you guys for info and map off fisheries website. Daunting leaving harbour as there was a real pea souper but it soon burnt off. Fished buzzers on a floating line for about six hours then lots of...

    Loch Leven for first time

    That’s a very interesting article. I’m off to print it out. Thanks for the link. As I plan to do less and less salmon fishing I’m sure Sunday will be the first of many more days on Loch Leven.

    Yes you’re right of course. Forecast of 23C looks a bit daunting. Floppy hat, factor 50 and lots of water. Hopefully my boat partner will be equally keen.

    Loch Leven for first time

    Thanks for the photo. I’ll be using 14’ to 20’ leaders and everything from a floating line to a very fast sinking line. Should get them down to the fish. Len

    Buzzers for Loch Leven. Lashed these up from what I had lying around. Might do the trick.

    Loch Leven for first time

    Found the places mentioned on the Loch Leven fishing map. Now frantically searching through a box of buzzers for anything with green in it. Len

    Salmon fly line

    Believe Barrio is having a problem with suppliers at the moment but email your needs and you will be contacted as soon as supplies arrive. I bought a trout line this way and it is superb.

    Loch Leven for first time

    Thanks for the information. Forecast looks hot so the factor 50 will be plastered on! I better get some green biots and quills pronto. Suspect I’ve got every colour but! Hoped the brownies in Leven would give me an excuse to get some nice old fashioned wets flies into play.

    Troutline

    The postage is a shame as they have some nice stuff. I’ll be sticking with Andrew’s Scruffy Dubbing from now on. Len

    Troutline

    Anyone use Troutline? Their small print says that wee parcels are free but I only seem to get postal options of about twenty quid which I’m not paying for a few packets of dubbing. Len
