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 10 November 2014

At this time of year it's rare to catch with dry flies but two anglers last week caught fish with black Hoppers and black Shipman Buzzers.

We are getting into the usual winter mix of flies here i.e. Damsels, Dancers, Bloodworms, Blobs, Buzzers and goldhead Nymphs. Ricky Taylor ws catching well with his red Bloodworms and changed to a yellow one which was also working well to tempt the trout. Yellow or orange Blobs have gained some anglers quite a few fish.

Although the trout are cruising at all levels in the water, most have been caught in the top 3 feet. Alex Rowley released a very large rainbow caught in the shallow corner, possibly a 10-pounder.

We are still open every day at the moment and will only cut down our opening days in January and February.
