The fishing has been really hard going  most of the time due to the adverse weather conditions. Anglers who have have some success have been using mostly D3 or D5 or intermediate Lines. Various lure patterns including Black & Green, Cats Whiskers, Dancers, Blobs and Boobies. Slow figure eight has been the most productive.

APRIL 2018 Upto 15th, Townhill ac and The Black Bull ac both had a fantastic weekend with all there members getting there bag limits and releasing many more. D3 D5 and intermediate lines were the most productive teamed up with Mini lures Black & Green, Cats whiskers and Yellow Dancers. Cormorants and nymps also done well.


Report upto 22nd April, Nice weather for a couple of days helped the fishing big time. Plenty fish getting caught/released. Still mostly intermediate or midge tip lines teamed up with mini lures and boobies. A few anglers have also enjoyed some success with Cormorants and small nymphs. Above is James Hope from StBoswells ac showing off one of many fish caught and released on their outing to Glencorse Rsv.

Report upto 30th April,  Bad to poor weather knocking the fishing for a six. We thought we had seen the last of the cold winds from the east , but heavy rain and bitter cold winds have set us back yet again. The fishing has been so changable, good one day then hard the next. The start of May has been quiet but the fishing is improving. Gilmerton Fly Fishers had a good day and all the members bagged up and released several more. Davy Thomson from Edinburgh was out on Thurday 3rd May and had a outstanding days fishing. Davy had his bag limit and released 14 more. In his bag limit he had a cracking brownie taken on a black and green tadpole fished on a intermediate line. photo below !!!!



Good returns despite the very changable weather. Its been Wet and Very Cold for the time of year, and its also been hot and very sunny at times with not a cloud in the sky. This without any fear of controdiction has had a adverse effect on the fishing.   Some anglers however, have had outstanding sport and had fish well into double figures. George from the Vesuivious angling club had a lovely brace of fish with 4 for 24lbs. George took them on a fly unknown to me named a German. Photos below. Wellington A/C also had a great day with members getting well into double figures. The Heriots AC and the Rainbow Warriors were fishing in  very bright and sunny conditions ,with winds changing direction most of the day. Still , they managed to get a good few fish. Mostly intermediate and sinking lines.
