Mr J Gray (East Kilbride) caught fish of the week – a monster 17lb 4oz rainbow using fly.  It was his first ever visit to Wellsfield.  I Reddie (Edinburgh) caught a 14lb rainbow trout and G Anderson (Carronshor) caught a nice 5lb Brown Trout in his bag of 5 fish for 18lb.  See photos below.

Another excellent week for top of the water fly fishing and bait fishing.  The evening sessions are doing very well for dry fly and buzzer fishing, and nymph and lure fishing has produced the best results daytime.  Floating lines with long leaders to 15ft proved most successful.  Rainbows, Blues and Brown Trout have featured.
Best flies: Hoppers, Diawl Bach, Buzzers, Mini-Dancers.  Best Baits: Maggots, Worms, Mepps Spinners.
