Hi folks

The Haddo Winter League got off to a good start in November, with many anglers catching double figures in their 4 hour competition session. Keith Crocket tempted 29 fish for his entry, Kevin Neri also netted 29, Henry Lockhart 21, Denis Brown 18, Bill Bain 16, Kenny Hall 11, John Brown 11, Bill Main 11 and Fred McAlley 10. Names are still being taken for the league if you fancy taking part? ......... contact me on the usual 07810 868897
The slightly milder conditions appear to have encouraged the fish to feed a tad higher in the water again this week and Diawl Bachs, Pearly Pennell, Buzzers, Bloodworm, Spiders, Damsels and Ice Maidens have all produced good sport  :wink:

The takes have been "interesting", lots of nips and plucks which have not been easy to convert in to hook ups. These have also resulted in a higher percentage of fish "falling off" than normal  :cry:

Denis Brown's 18 fish included a nice rainbow of approx 10 lb, Ian Smith tempted 12 to 5 lb 12 oz and his first ever blue, Stuart Spencer 14 to 7 lb, Iain Cameron 10 to 3 lb, Henry Lockhart 15 to 6 lb, Lloyd Rattray 11 to 3 lb, John Millington 17 including a 12 lb rainbow and a 6 lb blue and junior angler Jay Scott also caught his first blue at 4 lb in his bag of 5 when fishing the loch for the first time.  :cool:

Bookings? ....... Please note that Haddo is fully booked on Friday December the 1st.
As for the weekend, I currently have 1 boat available on Saturday and 2 boats available on Sunday. ( phone 07810 868897 )

Best wishes
Mike Barrio
