Title: Artloch Report - incl 24 Jun 07
Post by: Stuart at Artloch on June 26, 2007, 09:37:32 AM
While the recent poor weather certainly made some uncomfortable fishing conditions, some anglers did enjoy their sport at Artloch.  

When the fish were in the mood they were taking a wide variety of flies, but dries, buzzers and nymphs were the most successful patterns.   Examples of recent baskets included a trio with 11 fish; L Wood using a White Buzzer and visiting anglers P Mason and T Grimeshaw using buzzers, nymphs and fritz flies.   Another visiting angler K Green tempted 12, best at 4 lbs on small dark dries, as did J Rennie with his best at 6lbs using a damsel.   N Thompson returned 14, best at 4 lbs using a Nomad, while P Green released 16, best at 3 1/2 lbs using a variety of buzzers and nymphs.  Top rod went to J Rennie who released 18 and 30 fish over 2 visits using an Olive Damsel, best at 6lbs.
