Burgh water October report from Allan
October started well with a good rise of water which cleared and with a few fish in the pools, some anglers caught a fish or two. Lincluden pools did well, again with the worm catching most fish. Tony Evans, John Cameron and Ian Lindsay got fish and I had one which was very coloured at the Castledykes, with the fly. It has been a mixed bag at Lincluden with some fresh and others black kippers. Following this the river dropped away and so did the fish. With frosty nights and cold days, even the resident fish were not showing. Few rods were out in the last weeks of October, I mostly had the river to myself with only daft fishers like me brave enough to stand the temperature and the leaves which were a nuisance. I hear beats up stream are getting fish, some fresh, as far as Thornhill, with Dalswinton and Friars Carse also reporting catches, so they must be running through. Lets hope November will be good but the forecast is rain and wind.
Catch any fish or any fishy stories, give me a ring. Allan Blyth, Tel 01387-721211

Friars Carse Update - 22nd October.

Just had the latest information from the beat, Pete Behan had a 4lb & 5lb grilse whilst fishing the worm on the Riding Stone & Island Pool.
Other regulars to the beat Roger Bagshaw had a fish of 6lb whilst fishing Marsdens & another of about 4lb whilst fishing the Policemans, he also lost a larger fish on the Farm Pool, all fish where hooked whilst fishing the worm. Eddie Peacock lost a fish on the Ledges whilst fishing the worm and another in the Farm Pool whilst fishing a Devon Minnow on a Bouncing Betty. Roger Sandland had another fish from the Policemans, a fish of around 10lb whilst fishing the worm.

Not many weeks left now until the end if the season, lets hope we get some steady levels and good runs of fish to finish the season off.

If you need any information about the beat them give me a call.
