Fished Drummond Loch on friday with a couple of mates, conditions were near perfect, warm , a nice breeze, maybe a bit bright but you can't have everything  :wink

Drummond is a mile south of Crief and is run by the local angling association. Well it was a hard day, surprisingly there was nothing hatching  :z8 we had 3 bandies to the boat and one nice fish or around 1-1/4lb on a Dirty Weeker on the last cast of the day  :z13
All in all depite the fishing not being great it was good to be out fishing in good company  :z16

It's a term that evolved in Wick during it's time as one of the top herring ports and actually started as 'Dirdie Weeker' with the Dirdie a local work for busy or hard working.  Over the years it evolved to 'Dirty Weeker' adopted by locals and meaning a true out and out Wick man (or woman).  It has never meant that Wick people were adverse to soap and water  :wink

A crackin flee, especially on the tail in a big wave and short lining.
