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!)
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.
