A good fishing week until Autumn arrived with a vengeance on Friday. Despite the wet and windy conditions on Friday, Gregg Johnson from Ashington managed to catch and return 6 rainbow trout to the Little Lough.
The wind had dropped by Sunday and a better day was enjoyed by the 14 visiting anglers. Dave Moody and Mark Strachan from Norham caught and returned 8 rainbow and 1 blue trout to the Great Lough and three visitors from the Kelso Angling club also had a rewarding visit, catching and returning 12 fish.
The best fish of the week was a 4lb rainbow, caught by Ken Davison from the Great Lough on Wednesday.
This week we were visited by 49 rods who caught 80 rainbow, 2 blue and 7 brown trout. Of these 79 were returned safely to the water.
Successful fly patterns were: Black Dries, hoppers, diawl bach, whisky muddler, damsel nymph, booby, Kate McClaren, buzzers, bloodworm.
