“The Goldenloch”

What a rubbish weekends weather, after such a great weeks fishing, a massive low was over Central Scotland spoiling the weather, the atmospheric pressure (1040 hPs ) just kept the fish down on the bottom or low down , well most of the fish, I really don’t know what lads who were catching were using but for them it was working well, catches were amazing for some, Malcolm Brown keeping 1 and returning 5, fishing with buddy Peter MacDiarmed returning 4, however the follows and tugs were nothing like as much as it was during the week, Rod Thaw on Saturday had 12 all returned using CDCs and John Bowman had 4, the afternoon was roasting and flat calm but Grant McGregor still managed 17 using a Diawl Bach and a Sedge hog, Newbie Andrew Millar, Cowdenbeath, had a 1 kilo rainbow, as did Neil Christies, Son in law being taught by the master himself, during the week the fishing was much better as was the catches, many more had a great days fishing albeit a tad weedy, so the current position is as a Grandad it would seem important duties have to be undertaken so weed pulling happens best in the morning, I would say that 45 % of the loch is bare bottomed with 20% yet to pull out, down the side beside the jetties just needs a wee tidy with the long pole on the boat its all good and a wind would be nice to shift the tags of the water, easily 5o ton plus removed in two days all by myself which is pretty good going, Summer holidays are here so if camping is your thing try fish/camp/fish, from the bank, teaching kids to fish under your control, you are welcome here at no charge, the responsibility is all yours, we know that sometimes a few hours is enough, so you are most welcome, ( No Spinning Rods ) Its been a busy year so far, also very enjoyable soon I will be on top of the weed situation and then we can start to think about a competition.

Fly Fishing is a Pastime, it is not only relaxing, but also rewarding, both mentally and physically, come to the “Goldenloch” enjoy your Hobby to the max, no stress, only tranquil surroundings abundant wildlife, great fish, Brown, Blues and Rainbows, you will not be disappointed.
