THE FISHING this week at Kingennie has been affected by all the rain we have had and visibility on all ponds has been reduced to a couple of feet.

Anglers have had to work really hard for their fish and found that managing to land two or three fish was good going. On all ponds the best and really only fly to work was the bunny leech in various colours with pink and black being the top colours.

Floating lines haven’t been needed this week as 99 per cent of all fish caught have been close to or on the bottom.

The bankside has seen the best of the sport with leeches being worked in the margins where light penetration has allowed for that wee bit more visibility.
