so i decided that with only being out for a few hours i wouldnt bother getting a boat so i set out along the path that runs along the lochside hell it was a nice day and i could do with the excercise , there was a couple of spots i wanted to fish and would enable me to get a half decent high up look at the flies in the water from the casting platforms so it was a case of hi ho hi ho into the deep dark woods i go
while i walked up the bank i spotted this crazy flog lazilly swimming along without a care in the world , if only it knew what lurks beneth and what ive actually had from this spot from a boat casting towards this very spot .....
just past this spot i setteled in for a few casts fishing in around 5ft over a bed of weed that usually produces a fish or 2 but this time i didnt get a touch so didnt stay at this bit too long , im thinking i may not have been able to get into the spot from the bank that i normally get fish from the boat but hey ho nothing ventured nothing gained worth a cast
one of the many flies i was testing out today profile was awesome and moved just how i wanted it to , now if i could just get a fish out id be happy
as it came to the end of my day i tried one of the bigger flash alices that i had and was very impressed with the action of it ,the fish however had other ideas and compleatly blanked me for the last hour oh well
so not the best of quick sessions but thats how it goes sometimes , i had four hits i saw a small pike sitting at my feet and had a few seconds of rod bending action , but you know im thinking with the rise in tempretures im thinking that the razor gang may have lamour on there minds who knows , but hey great to be out in stunning surrondings and sometimes thats enough to put a smile on your face ......
