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.
