Almost that time again to start getting ready for the season ahead (not that i get much time to fish these days).

Tight lines to those who fish this bonny river.

Few fish been caught so far this season, I know of 4 to come off stair, 2 off Annbank and 1 off Sorn. We’ve definitely got the water for it just now, hopefully start bumping into a few more fish now, has anyone else heard of any?

2 caught off MBAC through the week that i know of, not that many being seen though. Noticed 13 cars on the Muirkirk beat yesterday between Muirkirk and Sorn so would hope there would be some caught up there. Fished from noon till 5pm yesterday afternoon in perect conditions and seen nought. The Ayr doesn't fish well if it's been running big for too long. It needs to rise and then settle again for a week or so before the next rise to be at it's best.

Lost 1 myself yesterday off Annbank it was only on for 10secs max then off, to get a lot of water this week then another dry spell so we’ll see. To be honest I’m not expecting much until September October, always felt Ayr is a backend river

Wee trip up to Mauchline this morning and down Barskimming Road to the bridge. Should have checked levels before setting off as river was high and dirty.
From the bridge I could see a couple of surveyors/theodolites on the river bank next to the demolished works.
Anyone know if there are plans for this area?

Seen 5 of them there earlier on in the week, not sure what they were upto as i was just driving over the bridge when i seen them. They were pointing towards the sewage plant but I'd bet my $ it will be to do with the old mill plot as it was up for auction a few weeks back.

Blimey- that’s taking Covid measures to the extreme, wearing a bag over your head while fishing!
