Another very good week, despite the harsh weather conditions, Burnouse produced some great catches.  Heavy rain on Wednesday didn’t put off a few brave anglers. Die-hard fishermen know that a heavy shower at the right time can be just what the doctor ordered. We certainly don’t advocate fishing in a thunder and lightning storm, but the next time you see a steady rain, dress for it, turn on your enthusiasm and go after ‘em. You’ll be glad you did.

Thank you to everyone who came to wet a line with us, especially we were happy to see good old friends to return to the fishery.

Please ensure you are fishing safely when angling in respect of both adherence to Covid-19 Scottish Government guidelines and whilst on and beside the water.
