Flies and Tactics

Rosslynlee is well known as a 'top of the water' fishery, which means a floating line can be used here most of the year, although on blustery days some anglers change to an intermediate line. The water itself is around 10-12 feet deep around the shallowest area and deepens gradually to around 22 feet at the dam.

Our anglers get good bags of fish by using flies such as Buzzers, Bloodworms, Nymphs, Damsels, Dancers, Cats Whiskers, and Black Fritz lures. From spring to autumn the dry-fly fishing is great fun with CDC's, Black Spiders, Dry Olive, Suspender Buzzers, Shipman Buzzers, Hoppers, Sedges, Muddlers, Daddies, and foam Beetles.

Fishing Report 7th August 2016

We had some great days of dry-fly fishing when the fish would take Hoppers, Suspender Buzzers, CDCs, Klinkhammers and Daddies but, as with all other fisheries, the hot spell of two weeks ago has warmed up the top of the water to a temperature the trout do not like so they went deeper and for a while lures, buzzers and Apps Bloodworms were best choice flies.

During the past week it has been easier to catch on the top with dries again or just under the surface with Buzzers, Diawl Bachs, wet flies and nymphs.
