High Activity, Low Interest

Fish were being caught I was told, but seemed to have headed down deeper with the wind. So I opted to start with a sinking line ( an intermediate would have done but frankly I am not very happy with my Airflo intermediate line- I will need to get a new one, as sections of it appear to stick firmly to the surface and some less heavy flies end up trapped int he surface not just below as they should. ) and this ensured I would get down with my flies. On the point I had a modestly sized “fireman” lure and on the droppers a Cormorant and a black Pennel. Within a few casts at the south end of the loch I had my first follow, all the way in to my feet though the fish lost interest as soon as movement stopped ( I couldn’t retrieve further) and swum off. Interestingly it was the Pennel it appeared to follow.
