The Tanks were never on fire yesterday but nevertheless rewarded perseverance and a roving approach. I tried No3, 2 then 1, settling on the most sheltered corner of No 1 up near the inlet (though actually there was no flow at all). I started fishing mid-morning and was done around 5pm. By then I'd had 6 on a static dry sedgehog (12#). I also had 2 on at once at one point (the fish on the diawl bach on the dropper came off, the other on the dry was landed), plus lost 3 or 4 others, including a good one which took me into a large weed bed. I also had well over a dozen, possibly 20, other takes and offers to the dry. A few fish were moving on the edge of the ripple, but not really rising as such. Most of the fish were pretty recent stockies but a couple had been in for quite a while, with sharp fins and tails. I was probabaly fishing too large a fly TBH as my conversion rate from takes to hook-ups was not great but (very lazily) it made seeing the fly in the ripple easier and I couldn't be bothered to change, plus seeing plenty of action was fun. Signs warning of blue green algae were being displayed - and it really is bright blue green, incredible, I've not seen it as bright as that before, it looked like a paint spill in places.
