The Five Month Wait Begins!

This being the sixth day of the tenth month of two thousand and twelve I decided to end the trout fishing season this afternoon by spending a few hours at my local Hillend Loch. Needless to say I didn't manage to fool any trout what so ever. Apart from the flytying and the occasional grayling outing to look forward too I will have to endure the dark nights of winter, Halloween, Guy Fox Night, Christmas and New Year before I can start thinking of the new fishing season on the fifteenth day of the third month of two thousand and thirteen.


  1. Do you not fish for Rainbows at all Allan, in the winter?

  2. Not been to a fishery in winter for years Last time was about 4 years ago when I went to Markle. Used to visit fisheries now and again years ago a couple of my favourites were Tweedsdale and Allandale Tarn. Tinto fishery is open all year round so I might have a visit there if weather is mild. But I would rather go fishing for the grayling in winter
