Hill Loch trout

Post by fergie68 »

Conditions were awful bright sun and flat calm. I manage to rise a few tiny fish maybe trout perch or minnow on the dry but didn't hook up. As light faded the were just subsurface feeding on buzzers so I put a cleared shipmans on the point and hung a epoxy buzzer on the dropper. I had plenty takes on the shipmans but only managed to hook up twice . The epoxy buzzers that I tried were ignored apart from one small perch.
What a night though it was lovely .

I dont know Steve we get one summers day then a week of rain and high winds . I've cancelled a few trips this season because of the high winds.
I have a few re- roofing jobs to start if I didn't I'd be in Spain right now I'm thoroughly scunnered with it all.

I organised a day on the Loch for Friday as it looks OK (just ok) and then found out its the Glasgow fare weekend . 😩

It’s interesting to get the weather confirmed, like I say Alan I follow your weather but with total disbelief at the amount of rain
You’ll get the roofing done once the trench foot has healed :laughs:

On the subject of rain I cancelled work today due to the horrendous forecast and it was dry all day πŸ™ƒ

Sometimes you just have to go for it to hell with the trench foot. :laughs:

I'm going for it in Friday too regardless of the public holiday and the inevitable jet ski w*****s.
I will let you know how it's fishing :thumbs:

Aye its a bit lighter than the usual trout from there too.
It's been totally pish hasn't it.
Nothing new though I got a memory pic today from Amazon me with a trout in July 2020 and I'm dressed for winter it must have been freezing . πŸ˜•
I'm clearing my feet of work and getting abroad as soon as I can. Unfortunately it won't be till at least September. 😎
