    This past week saw the fishing resume on Friday in Scotland after a 9 1/2 week lockdown due to to the coronavirus outbreak which has happened to coincide with the driest May for sometime and a bit of a heat wave. The daytime temperature on Friday was 27c but that wouldn't put off any fisherman/lady after such a layoff who were just glad to be out fishing again although with the various restrictions that we have in place.

    Friday started with things looking pretty promising with the height at 6" on Cairntons gauge and the water temperature at 61f. There were a few fish showing here and there and there were a couple of connections with fish which unfortunately failed to hang on. Saturday the rods decided on an early start given the days forecast for another hot and sunny day but it was through the heat of the afternoon that two fish were landed in the Grey Mare on a size 14 Shadow Shrimp and a full floater.

    This coming week looks a bit better condition wise with daytime temperatures cooling down a bit with some occasional light rain so hopefully we will be on the scoresheet for June pretty quickly.

    All our availability for the coming weeks and rest of the season can be found on our website and you can contact Sarah to book. She will advise at time of booking the restrictions that are in place relating to Covid19.

    Cheers Brian
