23rd Sep 2018 - Fishing Report w/e 23rd September 2018

Following the aftermath of Storm Ali, the strong winds during the middle part of the week, rejuvenated both lakes adding oxygen and fresh water whilst giving the natural fly life a good stir up. This brought the ‘lakes to life’ after the long, warm and drawn out summer we have had. Bloodworms have been prolific flies this week as well asDiawlBach’s and other small nymphs proving successful in the changeable weather.
