That photo was taken early in the week last week and a high proportion of the leaves have now fallen. The changes in the colours and density throughout the week have been fantastic to watch :cool:

Best wishes

Hey cameron with the bloodworms just plain red no beads and they are either fished deep on a floating line and long leader down the deepend or suspended 3-4ft under a big dry up the shallow end. Damsels just plain olive worked for me.
hope this helps !

haha depends how the fish are feeding, most of the time I usually only ever use 1 fly but if they are feeding on the surface also, the dry and buzzer NZ style covers both.

going buy the temp/weather today looks lik its gonna be a COLD one tomorrow

Hi Cameron :z16

The road outside my house is frozen tonight and has snow covering it ... cars are struggling to get up it :z6

With tonight's forecast and the conditions outside at the moment, I think there is more than a fair chance that the loch will be frozen tomorrow morning :z6

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what it's like in the morning :wink

Best wishes
