Despite the “polar plume” and its accompanying cold, windy weather buzzers have remained the most successful fly patterns this week. Towards the back end of the week lures were more successful with James Carr having a successful day on Friday, bringing 11 fish to the boat and taking three home using Ally McCoist and Cat’s Whisker patterns. Saturday and Sunday fished well too despite the horrible weather. Sunday afternoon post 13.00 offered great conditions with Messrs Ibbotsen and Robinson of the Kingfishers bringing 13 rainbows and 5 blue trout to the boat,fishing with cormorant and cut throat cat.
