SPRING FLY ONLY

Overcast conditions and a strong cold southerly breeze welcomed a good turnout of anglers to the Fly Only. Fifteen anglers in total competed and were not disappointed as the Gryffe kicked into life. Rods along the South Shore faired well with the Sneddon brothers taking nine fish between them Thomas pipping Alan at the weigh in by three quarters of an ounce. Further along the shore Andy McKay took six fish to his dry set up with Humpys being his productive pattern on the day.
The north shore also had its hotspot with Barclay and Blair doing well later in the day. Both rods took six fish with Barclay taking fish on a Slow Intermediate and Blair a floating line coupled with a Gorgeous George Muddler and a small Black Lure. Iain Lindsay also had success in this area in the morning taking his six fish and returning a good few in jig time. Successful tactic was a Slow Intermediate line and a cast consisting of a Doobry, Kate McClaren and a mini Damsel. In the afternoon Iain changed to a floater and continued to add to his excellent performance picking up a couple of smaller fish at Corlic and along the Clay Bank.
After a good start in Corlic fishing slowed for David Downie however he managed three nice fish and managed to bend into a couple of Pike.
Round in Garshangan Tam McDade using a floater took a good bag of 5 fish the biggest just short of 2lb, this was enough to secure third place just behind Archie Blair in second. Iain Lindsay took first place with a bag weight just under 7lb. Overall 15 anglers returned 48 trout to the scales, not a bad day at all.
