Trout on the Top at Lochter.
« on: June 20, 2011, 12:23:08 PM »
It is always encouraging for anglers to see rising trout when they are out fishing ,it confirms that there are some there to catch. It can also lead to frustration when these self same fish prove difficult to catch. At this time of year there is plenty of natural food and as a result trout can be a bit picky so anglers have to work out how to tempt them. This is one of the great skills of fishing and one of the great joys when it works.
At Lochter Fishery Oldmeldrum during the past week there have been plenty of fish on top so plenty of challenges for anglers .Dave Murray found that suspender buzzers worked and tempted fourteen while Frank Smith used a full floater, Grey Wulf and landed seventeen. John Parsons used  an entirely different technique .Fishing a black and green fazzle on an intermediate line on the Muckle Troot Loch he had twelve keeping two and releasing the rest. By and large buzzers ,cdc`s and small nymphs have worked best. Fishing pals John Brown and Kevin Neri had twenty five between them on diawl bachs, R Ross used black spiders to tempt nine, Albert Trail had nine on dries, Kevin Martin fourteen on buzzers and Keith Wright fifteen using a combination of cdc `s and buzzers. There were plenty of bags of five and six so most anglers obviously found a system that worked reasonably well.
This weekend the fishery is delighted to play host on Saturday to the Scottish Final of the Royal British Legion Competition. Three man teams from nine regions will battle it out on the Muckle Troot for the honour of being Scottish Champions. Good luck and tight lines to them.
The forecast for the week continues unsettled which is not so good for Wimbledon but is fine for fishing.
