Opportunities around Maybole from John Dunn, student at May-Tag studying ICT
(20/03/01) When I go fishing,
I like to go to the River Ayr or Loch Snipe, at Loch Snipe. It cost about £5 to
£6 for a permit per day. You are only allowed two to three fish per person. It
is fly fishing only. At the River Ayr it
will cost about £2 to £3 for a permit per person per day you can take as many
fish as you catch.
I like the river
Ayr. It has different types of fish like Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Sea Trout
and Salmon and most of all EELS. I hate them because if you catch an eel a fish
will not take to that hook. You have to dispose it in the proper manner by
putting it in a bag then a bin or take it home. There are three
types of river fishing Fly, Spinning and pole.
I like fly fishing.
It gives me a chance to use the flies I make at home. Sometimes I catch some
with the flies I make. Some times I don't.Fishing is good for
relaxing but when you catch a Salmon or Sea Trout the adrenalin kicks in and
then you have a fight on your hands. It may last for 25 to 30 minutes to land a
Salmon or Sea Trout.Sometimes I may
catch Brown Trout or Rainbow Trout on the fly or bait such as live worms and
maggots or spinning with a plug.Most of the time I
like the peace and quiet of the country.
