    Default Shrimping in Scotland

    Not to give too much detail, but the waters I use to fish with all methods, are now FLY ONLY. This change happened over10 years ago and although
    I catch fish under normal fly conditions , when the levels drop,the fishing
    stops.
    Where in Scotland is there any descent fishing which allows shrimp?

    Thanks Jack.

    ps. didnt put in the GENERAL section as I didnt want the FLY ONLY and
    C&R FACTION to start screaming.

    Hi Jack,you are allowed to shrimp on the Annan and when done with a single hook is the best method for catch and release ,the same with worming hit the fish early and it will be in the scissors or at least in the mouth,a lot easier than getting out a treble or double in my opinion

    most fish taken on this stretch are caught on the shrimp.
    perfect water for the shrimp

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In theory the shrimp / prawn is less likely to get hooked deep than the worm. . . . IN THEORY mind. . . before I get my napper bitten off!!!

    I have heard recently about the two places mentioned above i.e. Doon and Annan. Also heard the Irvine / Garnock may????????? I certainly dont know of anywhere else. then I didnt know about the two places mentioned
