DESPITE the high winds of late the fish at Rescobie have been providing great sport.
Getting them to take hasn’t been too much of a problem - getting them to stay on is another matter!
Various lures such as cat’s whisker, damsel, dancers of various colours have been taking fish, as have buzzers and small traditionals like Kate McLaren. The fish are not far down and intermediate lines are getting the flies to them. The fish are well spread out, but the middle of the loch seems favourite at present – if you can get your anchor to hold!
