Outing Nr 7 Stenhouse 21st June

Conditions were not too promising with thunder and lightning forecast and it duly obliged rumbling away in the distance at first but it eventually arrived overhead and we had to stop for a while till it passed (didn’t want to get frazzled) and things settled down after that I think it put the fish off for a time Wind was eastish with good cloud cover and some fish rising Midge tip or sink tip lines with flies varying from Dries to Blobs were the tactics The winner was Gordon McKay with 4 fish for 8lbs 8 ozs and yours truly was second with 4 for 8lbs 1ozs  Heaviest fish were caught by Gordon and Jim Donnelly at 2lbs 7ozs Total catch was 22 fish for 44lbs 13 ozs Next outing is Monikie on 5th July
