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 31st January 2014

Well, we have come to the end of January 2014 and the New Year began with wet and windy but milder weather than normal. The water is cold and the trout have slowed down, wanting flies to be moved very slowly. It's mainly lure fishing just now but anglers who prefer small flies are having success with Goldhead Hare's Ears, Diawl Bachs, Black Buzzers and Okey Dokeys.

Ricky Taylor was first to record a catch this year, two rainbows hooked with his own Badger lure. Ricky also had catches with a Yellow Fritz and a Pink Fritz.
Gordon Bunce and Jock Dyet have caught many fish recently with Bloodworms and Vivas. Robbie Lovett also had several trout to Bloodworm varieties. Bob Steel caught his trout quickly with Black Buzzers and a Yellow Dancer and Douglas Gribble hooked a fine Blue trout with a Peach and Black lure. Black and green lures and Hothead Damsels are also worth a try.

We are closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays until 1st March, then open every day again at 8.45 am.
