Hi folks :cool:

"Bri" and I took a wander up to Loch Beanie today, we were glad of our waders on the way up as the path was as I remembered it, more than a wee bit damp ........ and it pretty much rained all day as well :z4

We were treated to the sight of a cracking deer on the way up and we spent the last hour of our fishing watching the repeated gallant efforts of an osprey on the far side of the loch :cool:

The trout were not really in the humour today, our thoughts were shared by another angler on the loch who had been out in the boat for the day ...... "wind direction and barometer are all wrong" he said.

There was a short hatch ( of olive beasties ) around midday and this brought a few small fish to the surface for a while. I picked up a couple of wee trout and experienced a few half-hearted swirls from fish of a similar size and I think Brian had similar results.

The new boathouse is looking grand and it kept us dry for a while as we set up the rods.

A great way to spend a Monday ....... I really enjoyed myself :z16

Best wishes

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience ;)

Glad you enjoyed it Mike, pity it was not fishing to well.


"Because in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing what they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion."

Aye, you can never legislate for the fish but the pictures bring the memories flooding back.

I had a great day out in great company.

I have never fished Beanie before and hope to go back as it is a really nice piece of water in fantastic setting.
It was nice to have fish rising for a while to chase, you soon forget about the rain.

At least the rain kept the midges away, they came out for a while between the showers, horrible horrible beasties.

Mike is being kind by not mentioning that I managed somehow to leave my jacket hanging up in my garage (story was bound to come out sometime) even though I had just put my camera into one of the pockets.
Getting older has some down sides.
Thanks for a shot of your fleece Mike and sorry folks no pictures from me.
