January- 05th– 2019, Week 1
Hi to all that read my “blog”, hoping you have had a pleasant Christmas and New Year, at last it’s a new fishing season, its now starting to liven up, just before Christmas the days were hard, the fish seemed to be deep and in hiding but some lads however still managed to find them Ian Wallace, Kinglassie, a regular fishing green/black under a indicator had 12 one day while Sandy Drummond, Kingskettle, could only get two, Captain Kemp, Kirkcaldy and Neil Christie, Kirkcaldy, one each but lost 3 or 4 each, wildlife just now is pretty sparse but Neil a keen Ornithologist (twitcher) has a keen eye and has spotted some pretty rare birds, photos will follow, John Robertson and Jim Gourley fished on the last of the hard days, getting a few fish but were disappointed at not getting more, had they come back the next day things were completely different, the ups and downs of the amount of fish that get caught here at the “Goldenloch” is not associated with when we stock the water (unlike many other places) we did a double stock in December, which anywhere else would have resulted in copious amounts of fish being caught, the fishing improved on the 30th December but that coincided with a massive rise in the air temperature, anglers always know that we have a good head of fish and that our fish thrive on the snails, bloodworm, pea mussels plus loads of other creepy crawly things, but be assured the stocking this year will be in tune with the weather, at this time of year anglers should be advised that the handling of fish should be of the absolute minimum, this is the time when the fishes slime, when removed can result in the fish being covered in a white fungus, so in the net just pop out the fly and release no need for a picture. Brian and Neil back this week had a much better day, Brian Stewart Dundee had 10, Hamish Kinnaird with his Grandad had 5 and G/Dad got 2 both over 4 lbs so was really happy, wind and frost are forecast the two don’t really go well together so we will wait and see.
