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 3rd September 2014

The fish are well spread out again in the cooler water and have been taking an assortment of dry flies, mainly black ones such as Beetles, F-Fly, Klinkhammers, Hoppers, Suspender Buzzers, Shipman Buzzers and Bibios. Daddies and Muddlers have also tempted fish and sub -surface flies such as Bloodworms and Buzzers have been good.

Some fine bags have been taken recently but during the past week the trout seem to be fixed on tiny black Beetles skimming the top of the water. Anglers who haven't been able to match those have gone on to try black wet flies or lures such as Black and green Cat's Whiskers or Black Dancers.
