Sport: Another very windy day at Stocks we had white horses across the main basin. It was also bright so you would expect the fishing to be very tough. However there were sign that the fish seem to be getting use to these conditions and most people managed to catch a fish or two from both the bank and the boats. Out on the boats today were Stuart and Brian Strachan. They started out at the Dam where they worked out a method with a Di 5 sinker an orange blob on the top dropper, a cormorant on the middle and a small cat booby on the point. Once they had caught few from this area they started move elsewhere. Their best spots were Black House Bay and The Willows along the East Bank. They ended up with 17 trout to the boat. Good going on a bright and breezy day. On the shore Clint Waddington had also sussed out that sinking lines were the way to go. He fished from Bell Point with a washing line set up on a medium sinking line. Although he had an orange booby the point he let it go down and fished them slowly and deep. He landed 6 trout in a half day session and his bag included a brown of 3lbs 8oz, a rainbow of 3lbs and a blue of 2lbs 8oz. Good angling.   Tight Lines Ben
