Fishery Reports / Loch Insch Report 30th August
« Last post by Loch Insch - David on August 30, 2019, 21:46:05 PM »
Another banging week at Loch Insch,  with the fishery well attended and many anglers well into double figures every day, on a variety of flies including cormorants, Diawl Bachís, crunchers, buzzers, dries, damsels and nomads.
11 double figure rainbows landed up to 15lb, and several lost.
 Lovely to see the big guys cruising in the crystal clear water, and feeding hard on corixae and buzzer.

 Iíve put double figure browns in this week too as an added bonus, but no-ones landed one yet. These Westmill fish are absolute class.

 Should be another excellent weekend!

Glenkindie still retain the salmon rights on culquoich. But that may be up next
I believe the sale of kildrummy has fallen through

No trout rising on the river on Wednesday evening, too windy and cold I guess as I didn't see any signs of insect life .... but a wet fly found a few fish :z12

I do know where Brunei is , but a distribution map of Humming birds does not include Asia, but the Humming bird hawk moth is wide spread out there, Macroglossum Stellaratum , the Humming bird proper is a New world bird ,I can sit and watch them when I visit my son in California, one species nests local to him
if you google Humming bird distribution it will give you the map and the Map of the Hawk moth  :z16 Derek Roxborough

Interesting! Thanks Derek  :z16 it would appear that you are correct. After said google search it would appear that there are birds here that are incredibly similar to Hummingbirds but obviously are not. I will need to try and get a picture the next time I see them.  :z16
