Week ending 05/12/05 goldenloch
December arrived at the Goldenloch with flat calm and gorgeous warm weather, but best of all was the rising fish that greeted anglers, the loch was speckled with rings as if it was a May evening, however it was quite difficult to find what the fish were after, and some trial and effort was required, red bloodworms, red buzzers and damsels won through for most, Jim Horsburgh, Kirkcaldy had 3 for 6lbs and Mr Ray Easton, Bankfoot had 6 all returned, Mr Grant Taylor had 3 for 6lbs and returned 6 using Black and green flies, with anglers not to sure whether to fish boat or bank, many are opting to do both, which is best? we do not have an answer, except that some just like to sit and relax on a boat enjoying their moments, one such gent was Mr Chris Williams from Edinburgh who on arriving thought that the bank looked quite appealing, after catching 2 for 6lbs, he then went on a boat to enjoy the tranquillity of the day, as he was just beginning to relax he caught a rather large Brown trout of approx 5-6lbs followed by another 3 brownies all within a few minutes returning them all, he eventually caught a nice blue trout for 2lbs which just made his day, The pensioners on there usual fortnightly Tuesday visit, Messer’s Brown, Nesmith and McClusky seemed to do very well, however its hard to tell with them, as their banter can be a little misleading but with definitely quite a few returned and a great big smile on their faces as they left we can only assume that they will be back soon.
