“The Goldenloch”

MAY- 18th-2020-Week-19-Lockdown Week-8

Again starting another week of lockdown, however there does seems to be a little Ray of sunshine on the horizon, it has been muted that the Scottish government may allow some limited or restricted access to golf courses and fisheries, we have to wait till Wednesday to hear the plan, ( a lot depends on the R number and how the public are reacting to measures already in place) I must stress that is would seem like the travel restrictions are pretty much still on, travel will only be allowed on short distance and definitely not mixing people from different households in the same car, we have here at the Goldenloch our own plan, which I must say seems to change occasionally with the government decisions, we have done a pretty comprehensive risk assessment that will be made available when eventually we do reopen, however we are not in a hurry, I must emphasize that your wellbeing, as well as mine, is our main and primary objective, It is going to be different now, I can see that the way anglers approach their leisure time and hobby is going to be a lot more solitary, you will be allowed to drive to your selected fav spot, etc it’s a new way forward, further details will be released as and when we make our decisions, PLEASE bear with us it is you we are thinking about.

As for the fishery, I have never seen so many tadpoles, they are massive, some are just huge the water which was crystal clear has got a little bit mudded in the last couple of days due to high winds, it's probably been at his best for the last Seven weeks, Lol, Mr and Mrs Osprey successfully managed to catch 3 fish each everyday for the last two weeks, their sons and daughters have not been as successful but do you occasionally catch fish, a fair bit of damage has been done by the Otter family, so pretty much everything as normal then.

fly Fishing is a Pastime, it is not only relaxing, but also rewarding, 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.
