Findhorn trouting...
« on: April 29, 2019, 09:06:44 AM »
So, with the weather being nice on Saturday I finally got the chance to try the upper Findhorn for trout.

For once the weather was nice and there wasn't a wind blowing me off the water.

Tried one pool which looks like it had great potential. Nothing.

The moved onto a much smaller but deep pool.

Fished a tungsten nymph on the point and one of the 'CDC' type nymphs on the dropper.

half was through the pool there was an almighty tug and I'm in.

A lovely conditioned fish to the CDC nymph

Two casts later and im in again - this time to the tungsten nymph.

And then same again .

So I moved on to explore the rest of the beat - fatal mistake. Didn't catch another thing.

The at 1300 there was a fly hatch so I moved to a large, slow pool and fish were rising to I switched to the dry fly.

Got a could of takes from wee fish then the bloomin wind picked up, the hatch stopped and everything went dead.  :z8
