« on: October 13, 2008, 22:04:02 PM »
Hi folks :cool:

Spiders, Damsels, Klinks, CDCs, Bloodworm, Hare's Ear Nymphs, small Dancers and white nymphs have been on the menu at Haddo this week :wink

On the boats, Dave Batty enjoyed a good session with 25 fish up to 7 lb, Alex Burnett tempted 20 up to 8 lb, Damian Bruce 20 up to 7 lb, Malcom Mead 13 up to 8 lb, Ken Begg 11 up to 8 lb and David Hunter caught 9 including a nice 12 lb rainbow trout.

Sunday's float tube gathering was good fun, Kev Danby netting 20 fish up to 6 lb, Callum Clark 18 up to 7 lb, Peter Scott 11 up to 2 lb and David Moir caught 7 including a nice 14 lb rainbow trout.

October is the first month in the Haddo Winter League and we already have some good entries.

Best wishes
Mike Barrio

I am not sure what the cocktail cabinet campbell fished with but he had a gas at Haddo.
Myself being unprepared looke on my fly patch and point was a red arrow (Irish lough pattern)
top dropper a soldier muddler (sun faded).
Had  agood 7/8 fish nothing huge but amusing fishing ,nice to see the cruisers and drop team in front of their noses ,some very fast snatchy takes ,not like Grafham fish !
Mike thanks we had a great day ,love the 2 rods and thanks for letting me try the 100ft head line!
If deveron is flooded out next year we will be back ! :z18 :z16
BTW finished the week with 4 tourists ,best close on 20  :z12

Just a question ,sunday am heading south out of Aberdeen saw a float tuber from the road ,similar size loch to Haddo ,what was it and what was he targetting !!!

That would have been the Loch of Loriston , you can get some more info if you check out the thread in the float tube section .
