Just out of intrest i was curious of where everyone enjoyed fishing throughout the winter months excluding Haddo!

Iam still yet to venture up to Haddo but iam sure it wont be a let down after reading the reports on here.

My top 3 are as follows:

1. Rae moir Banchory
2. Carlogie Dam Carnoustie
3. Loch insch

Well i guess i cant answer that one.

I only fish for Bows in one place these Days.

If you'd asked a few years ago i would have said  crimmonmogate,Insch, then pitfour but now :z8

you say thru the winter months so loch insch has to be high up as they have pumps so even when it freezes they can break the ice (failing that they have a orkney strikeliner with outboard which is a good ice breaker) aside from that my faves are (never been to haddo yet)

loch insch
