The week started with a horrible day with heavy rain and a cold easterly wind. Some Anglers faced the elements and managed to bag some good catches. Mike Noble (Blairingone) fished using floating line and size 14 sedgehog, he weighed in a cracking blue trout for 3lb 2oz. Ian McLaren (St Ninians) hooked into 2 rainbows fishing on C/R ticket, they were landed and then returned safely. Graham Boot (Polmont) weighed in 1 fish for 2lb 10oz using an intermediate line with a size 12 mini damsel. Mid-week the water temperature started to rise and was sitting at 16 degrees making the fish a bit more sluggish. Despite the hotter water, Anne Marie Hodgson (Banknock) landed and returned 2 rainbows using a floating line long leader with a size 12 pheasant tail nymph. As the weekend drew closer we had scorching hot weather which pushed the fish down, Alan McLaren (Stenhousemuir) weighed in two blues for 5lb 14oz fishing floating lines with a size 10 white & green fritz. Derek Leaper (Hallglen) also caught 1 fish at 2lb 8oz using the same method. The Rubber Ear Angling club fished Saturday evening. It was such a horrible night with thunder storms and torrential rain, felt sorry for the guys as they spent most of the night in the BBQ hut rather than on the water. Our visitor’s spirits were lifted after guzzling our Game Farm venison burgers with nice healthy salad in a roll. John McOnvile jnr weighed in 2 fish for 4lb 15oz. Ryan McOnvile had 2 fish for 2lb 14oz. Paul McOnvile had 1 fish for 2lb 8oz. All of the club’s fish were caught using buzzer’s. Davey McGuinnes fishing on C/R landed and retuned 8 fish on intermediate line using a size 10 apps bloodworm. To place a booking call Gary on 07889603160 or Virginia on 07742 755737
