I headed out last night for a few hours.
I went straight to my local sea trout mark however a burn was running high and brown mud was pouring into the loch. I fished around it as much as I could however eventually decided to head elsewhere.
The temp was hovering around 15 degrees however it still felt chilly somehow. I headed to a small local river instead of my stocked pond and within a few minutes was fishing up some fast water – possibly a little too fast. I worked my way up a few pools with the nagging feeling that I had forgotten something.
It was at this point a billion midges descended on me and drove me back to the car – the nagging feeling was the lack of midge net of course.
Conditions look great all week – gonna try and get an evening on the Kelvin at some point…
