Hi folks :cool:

Oops, sorry ........ I was editing my last post in this topic and I deleted the whole thread by mistake :oops

Luckily, I think just about all the fisheries, including Haddo are open now! :wink

Sorry about losing the posts :oops

But I've found the photos from the first clear water on Haddo on March 10th, so will post them below. If I remember correctly I think "bigtroot" Baz tempted a couple of dozen fish up to approx 10 lb on the day, Alex had about 18 up to 7 lb and Kenny about 13 up to 8 lb .......... everybody enjoyed themselves anyway and it's good to be back! :cool:









We've continued to enjoy good sport since then, but we can catch up with this in the next fishing report :wink

Good question :z4 ...... I don't know whether to carry on in to the Spring, or just give it up for this year :roll

What do the members think? :?

Hi Mike

To be honest I think the weather has kind of put paid to the winter league this year, most people must be 2 to 3 months behind.

Yeah i agree, might be worth just skipping out the last 3 months and fishing March, April, May to finish off. Either way though i think Jack Frost is the only winner this winter.

Hi Matt :z16

No, I'm not iced up again :z4

Just a cold, miserable, wet and windy day with a bit of sleet thrown in to make it interesting ...... my bookings sent texts this morning to say that they didn't fancy sitting in a boat today and I don't think I would either :z3

Cheers
