Delgatie Castle Fishing report w/e 06/08/11
« on: August 07, 2011, 14:42:56 PM »
At last, a good week's fishing with conditions and catches showing a major improvement in the past few weeks. Although the fishery does not seperately record 'wild brownie' catches, these have increased dramatically with most falling to a sharply retrieved wet fly. Small seems to be the order of the day with CDC, spiders, daddies on size 14/16 being most effective. Dry flies were certainly the order of the week.

Best recorded catches for the week were:

A Murray, Gardenstown, 11, wet flies/lures
N Thomson, Turriff, 10, CDC and buzzer
M Ewen jnr, Turriff, 9, dry fly
P Gray, Turriff, 8, dryfly
J West, Fraserburgh, 7, dry
J Mitchell, Gardenstown, 7, dry
F Murray, Buckie, 7, wets
R Murray, London, 7, dry fly

With today's rain (Sunday), and the overnight downpour, it is expected, once the water settles, that a good weeks fishing can be enjoyed.

Delgatie Castle is a Troutmaster water, where visitors and beginners are welcome and all equipment, including boats, rods and tackle is available for hire.

Opening hours are 7 days, 8:00am til 9:00pm. For further information contact Bob on 07980 999 006. :z15
