A fishy Story from Roger Hughes, Secretary .This is a True story

On Menteith today, on one size 10 Gold-Head Black Cat, I caught two blues at the same time and both were landed by Iain Black in the net at the same time.


At the Heronry, I hooked a broken cast around the middle dropper, with a fish either side, on the top dropper and the point fly. With consumate skill, I played both fish so that Iain could net first the one on the top dropper, while I grabbed the nylon and pulled the one on the point to the net. I have to give Iain some credit, he was a very worthy assistant to the master. So in one cast I caught two blues to 4lb 8oz and three blobs, one a gold head. Not bad eh! At the top of the cast was a 6" braid which had obviously pulled off the end of the fly-line - perhaps now he will Super-Glue it on.
