    Best Patterns
    black or olive buzzer, damsel, cruncher, white/green lures, fabs and blobs.

    Despite the cold Northerly winds there was a good buzzer hatch with plenty of birds working the water. The fish continue to feed 3-6 foot down on mainly small, black or olive midge pupae.
    Best method has been a blob or fab on the point with s12 buzzers on the dropper fished static or very slowly.
    Bank and boat fishing equally well.
