Fishing in a building site!

I Decided to go up to the Loch tonight at around 8pm. I met an old experienced Hillend angler when I arrived . He informed me that the area in front of the club house had been holding fish over the last couple of days. So I decided to take his advice and take up position along side the Railway construction works on the South shore.There were quite a few trout rising intermittently but it took me until about half past 10 tonight before I managed to hook and land a fish,., It was not a bad rainbow round about the 3 1/4Lb mark. Please excuse the quality of the photo as I did not have my camera with me tonight so I had to make do with my camera phone which doesn't produce the best of images. Not long back home feeling quite pleased with myself as I had made a few trips to the Loch lately and had blanked on each occassion. It feels great to be back in the groove!
