I think you got your wires crossed there Lowdouble it was Bat that had a disastrous trip to Scotland which I was sorry to hear about, he only
wrote one line on here but I bet there is a story there.
I abandoned my quest for twenty pounder and fished a small Tarn yesterday. I caught two small doubles and a Jack. I will be back at the quest
next week In Scotland. I do hope the weather gods are kind to me.

I like Scotland,been going for twenty odd yrs but fishwise,it's not been kind to me.its more of a social thing when we go there and still enjoy it.8 of us went this time and we had a good laugh.most of us are mature anglers and all are competant and don't leave rubbish on the bank,light fires and get pissed whilst fishing,unfortunately we are the minority

That's been my experience on the banks of the wild lochs up here. It's really depressing. Beautiful country ruined by a callous minority.

I've got a damned busy March work wise, so likely to be out in April next. Drove past my regular haunt yesterday and it was frozen.

Scotland trip. Day1 I stopped off at a loch on the way up. I had ten run but only landed three fish all jacks. Day2 I was on the river
I lost count the number of missed fish but I landed ten fish this one at 13lb being the biggest I also had one at 12lb.
Day3 the weather turn nasty with forty mile an hour winds and rain I stuck it out for six hours without a bite before packing up.
The next day I got up looked at the weather and decided to come home.

well done bat and Psion.   I had my last deadbait day of the season yesterday and landed one 14lb Pike,  so ended not on a blank.  today was trolling for wild brown trout again and this time I had 2 lovely fish at 5lb 12oz and 5lb 1oz,  plus a bonus 4lb bream hooked in the dorsal lol.

I did have Easter weekend penciled in for piking, but the forecasts are all saying Arctic cold snap again. Highs only just above freezing through the day (and bright sun - the loch never fishes well in bright sun) and minus 5-6 overnight (which probably means ice cover).

Oh well. I'm stupidly busy at work at the moment anyway, so I'll just have to postpone. Again. Crying or Very sad

I haven't had much to shout about this season , so been relatively quiet. Over the years I have been GENUINELY gutted at catching 3 or 4 beauties at 19.14 or 19.15 😀 ( sad but true)  so I suppose karma works itself out and a 20.01 will just do fine ....... So here she is from yesterday.
