Anyone else finding the fishing tough at the moment. My wife is pregnant at the moment so every hour is a prisoner getting the house in order. Any way .... headed out to Swanswater near Stirling on Saturday morning early. Was a bit bright but managed to find some shade at the favourite end of one of the ponds. Payed for a four hour ticket, 2 hours is a bit short. Fished hard and really struggled. Tried all of my usual patterns that usually work and had a few pulls before i managed to keep one on the hook, felt like i was using rubber hooks !!!!! Green pea was the fly of the day taking two of the three fish i landed (all the fish were hard fighting, acrobatic little blues.) Had lots of plucks and the tails on the flies were clipped fairly short. Knocked two on the head for 4lbs 4oz in the freezer for the in-laws. Just wondered if anyone else had been finding the trout hard to catch at the moment or is it just me !!!!! Tight lines cheers.
