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 March 2016

The weather has not been kind to us this winter as we suffered badly from the storms and heavy rain but the past week has been settled and we are getting into better, longer days. The best flies over the winter have been black or black and green lures although Olive Hothead Damsels, Bloodworms and Yellow Dancers have also been well used. Mr Dunbar released 13 trout in one session using a mini black Zonker, Mr Newman released 10, Jock Dyet released 8 using a Cormorant and an Egg-fly and Mr Callow and Mr Thomson both caught several fish with a black Hothead Cruncher.
