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 Report 28 April 2017.

Buzzers are now hatching in the water and the trout are following them up to take them just before they reach the surface. Small black flies are best to use such as Spiders, Hoppers, Klinkhammers, Beetles, Suspender Buzzers, wet flies and CDCs.

Anglers who prefer lures can catch with Damsels, black and green lures and various colours of Dancers. Cat's Whiskers are good on windy days.
