Haddo Trout Fishery ( to Nov 23rd )
« on: November 23, 2009, 16:12:57 PM »
Hi folks :cool:

It's felt good to be back at the fishery after being off ill for a few days. The fishing is interesting at the moment, with some pretty major changes of tactics being an advantage throughout the day. The floating line is still king, but the sink tip and intermediate are starting to produce their fair share of fish too.

Fly patterns have been varied too, anglers have chosen to fish Damsels, Crunchers, Spiders, Fritz, Bloodworm, Buzzers, Hares Lugs, Mini Cats and dare I say it, even Blobs! :shock

It is always great to see the junior anglers doing well and this week, Tyler Hay had a cracking session netting 26 fish up to 6 lb and young James Bruce had a good day learning and experimenting with different retrieves that produced his personal best catch of 8 fish up to 3 lb ....... Well done James!

As for the adults, Alex Burnett enjoyed a good session tempting 22 fish up to 11 lb, Jay Scott had 22 up to 9 lb, Ronnie Birnie 14 to 5 lb, Steve Corsar 14 to 3 lb, Scott Sim 12 to 3 lb, Dave Mackay 11 to 4 lb, Jim Eddie 10 to 6 lb, Graham Hay 10 to 4 lb, Alan Birnie 10 to 3 lb and Michael Nicholson netted a nice 3 lb brownie in his catch of 7 fish up to 6 lb.

Best wishes

Do you have any boats available for Sunday or Monday? I dont want to book now as I am not sure what day I want to come (or what day the bread knife will let me).

I probably will have Matt, this weekend and the next few weeks are usually a lot quieter than normal due to the Christmas shopping kicking in and the colder temps I guess :wink

Just give us a phone or send me a text on the usual 07810 868897 when a plan comes together :z3
