This hill loch proved to have nice shallow margins but shelved away very quickly as the short anchor rope in the dinghy proved... The fish were small but well marked . They were among the edges of the reed and water lily beds. They came to the top dropper it needed a small black bushy fly. No doubt taken for a terrestrial .
The fish are dark and very hard fighting for their size. The takes were never shy and the fight was acrobatic. Its a very different type of fishing for me, I am used to small rivers and fast water. At least since I have been fishing this year with spiders I can knot a decent dropper and am now have had a few trips loch fishing , but I am not yet an expert on this style of fishing I also doubt I ever will become one. I visited this loch a couple of times. Once the kids walked up to it with me , my ever faithfull labrador just about went into meltdown at the sight of me rowing out into the lake .
