Lake of Menteith opened today and what a great day it was. Perfect weather, a well turned out fishery and well behaved rainbows. Not always that you can say well behaved about the resident trout at the lake, there will without doubt be days this coming season when I will be cursing them.
Fished with Kenny Sichi and we spent most of the time at Lochend and the Butts almost any method and fly worked white cats, buzzers, daiwl bachs, crunchers et al you name it and the fish were happy. There were fish feeding to buzzers until a cool easterly breeze picked up. We fished catch and release and reckon that we caught in excess of 30 up to about 3lb and thats not counting the jack pike, or even the pike that bit our flies off. OK so they were stockies but it was a great way to start the season at the Lake.
Tomorrow is Glasgow Casting Club so more fishy things still to come this weekend.
