Middle of May at Dinnet/Deecastle

Monday 13th May began at 1'5 and continued to drop throughout the week finishing at 7", perfect fishing heights for the beat with a fairly cold river averaging 46 degrees peaking at 50 degrees by the end of the week. A total of 7 fish were landed with a few also lost. Logie produced the most fish for the week mainly from the Deecastle bank, although fish were few and far between and it proved to be a challenging week. With conditions ranging from hot sunny days to snow and hail showers it certainly didn't feel like the middle of May. David Conroy caught the first fish of the season from Ministers, and successful flies consisted of small silver stoats, cascades and crathes flys. Marcus Humphrey finished the week with a cracking sea liced fish from 29 which was the first of the season for that pool and he certainly deserved it!

A poor week compared to previous catches for the week but the rods fished hard and deserved every fish they got. We are hoping to see more fish soon and hopefully the pools may begin to hold some residents which may hold those runners back enough to catch a few more.
