Coldingham Loch Fly Fishing 2

Posted · Add Comment

No two days are the same.

I think it must have been a trout that invented that rule.

I had been up at the Loch six days previously and caught a hat full of trout.

Great fishing as well just cast a team of buzzers across the wind and let the breeze and flow fish them for you.  The slowest of figure of eight retrieves was all that was required.

As my old mate Bob Dalgleish says if you are fishing your Buzzers a slow as you can you are going too fast. 🙂

Anyway just doing that and every few casts a fish would try to pull the rod out of your hand.

Savage takes.

The only thing remotely special was I was using slightly small Buzzers in a size sixteen.

I would also occasionally put a buoyant fly on the point to keep the buzzers up.

Washing Line Style.

I would also take this off now and again to fish a bit deeper.

It did not make much difference.

So when I went back up on Easter Monday I just had to do the same again.

Right?

Wrong!

Not a touch on the Buzzers. Not even a pull.

Never mind the weather is almost perfect if a little cold and there are plenty of rising fish so just pick the dry fly rod up.

Easy Peasy right?

Wrong!

After a good few changes of Flies by Boat Seat Fly Patch was looking like an old fashioned Butchers Fly Paper……..

Looking round the Loch it seemed to be pretty hard going for everyone.

OK time to go smaller and finer.
