June 14th 2017.

18 enthused pupils from Dunscore school came for a fly fishing day on Drum Loch today along with the Nith Trust and Borderlines. It would be a day of invertebrate sampling, Fly casting techniques, playing and landing fish, a competition and much more.

All assembled and ready to make a start.

A demonstration on how to play a fish (which was much needed a little later!)

The invertebrates.

First take of the day and into a good fish…

..the nets man is ready!

A lovely brown trout which was quickly returned!

Another fish on…

.. this time a blue trout.

A good day on the loch was had by all and a few fish caught. Many thanks to DGAA for the use of the very nice water and the Nith Trust for organising this day.
