Yup..worm or maggot..water is still freezing so everything down deep. When the water heats up a bit..I had most luck with black pennals..or some other small black fly. I wasn’t fishing this time but I was there a lot when I lived in Ayr as a youngster.
Thats why I was in the Galloway Hills.. for old memories. Its not changed a bit..White lagan and Black Lagan bothies still on the go. They are blasting at Loch Doon and extending the forestry road south..soon it will join the forest road at Back Hill and go all the way to Clatteringshaws..that will be a blow to the wilderness if they open it to the public after clearing the trees.
White Lagan bothie..same as 40 years ago
Well..except they have a modern iron fire installed now instead of the open fire..and blanked off the attic.
Looking down part of the Silverflowe Peat bog from Dungeon Hill..biggest peat bog in the UK.. whole cows disappear in there..never to be seen again
I enjoyed visiting old memories ...Just made me wonder where the past 40 -50 years or so have gone ?
