Fly Fishing by J R Hartley.....................................

Remember that advert? Well today was Fly Fishing by the Lee family. We spent a very peaceful 4 hours at Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery
It was great fun and we even managed to catch a fish!!
We got there about 11am and John and Samuel sorted out the line for the rods and I sorted out the camera! Then it was off to find a decent spot and get fishing. It's the first time Samuel had been "Proper" fishing so John helped with the casting but left him to do the rest.
He obviously had beginner luck as within half an hour he had his first bite and managed to land a 2lb 1.7oz Rainbow(Blue) trout. He was really chuffed with himself.
We have of course the customary photo of said angler with said fish!!!!
As for John's luck well he had 3 "that got away" and of course they were all really big fish!!! Me I had no luck at all as by 3pm when I had a go, I think the fish had called it a day.
