Burnside has been rather more moody but some excellent results have been achieved. On catch and release, George Birse returned 13 fish, mainly caught on a Bronze Polar Bear. Buzzers have also accounted for a number of fish. On evenings when the wind has dropped the sport has been amazing with fish high in the water taking dries and buzzers.
