No Fishing

Well, I guess this is more of a rant than a blog entry.

Over the last couple of months it's been very difficult to get out due to work and family commitments.

Of my last two outings, I've had very little of interest to post so haven't really posted. I suppose an outing I had on a wee loch about six weeks ago would have made good reading apart from the fact that I was scunnered at hauling in Perch after Perch after Perch all below the half pound mark with not even a hit from anything remotely resembling a trout. This was not right and in fact very wrong as my boat partner had nothing but perch either. What more can I say.

On Sunday I had planned to fish a very good local water with some lads from one of the more well known fishing forums and had intended to do a good write up with photaes, stories of fish lost and caught but it was all cancelled due to high winds on the water in question.

At the moment I am feeling mainly and most severely scunnered.

For anyone from overseas that means I am not a happy camper.

Rant over.

  1. I know the feeling. Interested in the flies you tied on that snagged you so many Perch....As you'd guess I'm looking for a good perch fly and what you were using sounds perfect.

  2. Hi Simon,

    thanks for your comment / enquiry.

    The Perch were taking traditionally tied Daddies, silver dabblers and hothead black damsels / dancers.

    From what I recall I had a Di3 on and as the leader approached the boat I would lift, stall, retrieve.

    Hope this is of help and I'll try to get a pic of the flees to you if I get a chance.

    Best regards,


    P.S. I've not had a chance to look at your blog lately but will try to catch up this week.
