The weather as predicted was slightly warmer but the water temperature is still quite low – As verified by those that were brave enough to try a bit of wading. I ventured up on Saturday with Mick Mulgrew and was encouraged by a lively start with 3 fish in the first 15 minutes or so. We started at the shallow end and I picked up 2 fish on a hot head damsel then one on a small white lure with a floating line. The fish then seemed to switch of for a while as the bright sun put them down deeper.
I then moved round to the far bank and connected with 5 fish on a red and white bug fished on a slow figure of eight before the fish switched off again. However, I manged to pick up another couple to take me into double figures and all of the fish were in great condition with good tails and fought extremely hard. A great day all round and the scenery looked even more impressive than normal.
