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 18 April 2015

Things are beginning to change now with the better weather and warmer temperatures. Swallows were seen on the water this week for the first time this year so it won't be long before the trout are rising for dry flies. Already a few have been tempted up to take CDC's, Beetles and Black Spiders.

On cold days and on bright sunny afternoons the trout are still looking for lures, Nymphs and Buzzers. Black Buzzers especially have been very good choices during the past week. The Yellow Dancer is still a favourite though, and this gained young Lee Oliver 3 good trout for 12 lbs 8 oz.

For those looking forward to our evening sessions, these will start on Friday 24th April.
