The hot pegs

Four hours credit in hand I made my way up to the main loch and found a spot that allowed me to fish into the bank that was down wind, the wind was pretty strong at times but I fanced keeping to the down wind side to see if fish were following along with the stuff you seem t hear and read a lot that you should try fishing in to a wind at these sort of venues rather than taking the easy option and getting the wind behind you. Well it did nothing for me, I never had a touch on the beaded Fireman lure I started with on a floating line. The floater was adequate with a long leader to allow me to be sure my fly was getting down up the top end as I was catching bottom now and again.

Size wise it was near identical to the cased caddis and I do think this is what the fish were on.

I think John decided he wanted to keep loose before me and after a few minutes he was out and heading upstream again.

After covering a fair bit here I wasn’t showing much signs of squeezing a lump out of here so found a spot to exit and headed on up myself.
