Five anglers on the loch and a good start to the season at Haddo today :z16

Everybody caught fish, which is great news ...... the five anglers had 76 trout between them, all Brownies :cool:

Ewan tempted 25, Alex 20, Liam 11 and Peter and Alistair both netted 10. Alistair had a nice 5 pounder, Ewan another of about 4 lb and Alex had one of 3.5 lb.

Corixa, Pearly Pennell, Diawl Bach, Red headed Damsel, March Brown Nymph, Pearly Spider, Olive Fritz, Pearl Ribbed Hare's Ear and an Orange Dancer all appeared to work well.

Best wishes
Mike

An excellent opening day for the 2012 Season, and a personal best for me.  The fish were well up for it and gave a good account of themselves after a long winter.  They were paticularly fond of corixa in the morning and later in the day were happily chasing lures with great enthusiasm.

It was a long wait for Haddo to open again but it was just great to get out there again and have superb day on the water.  My advice is to book early guys to "avoid disappointment"!  :z16  :z2

Morning Mike ,
Craig and myself had an excellent day on Friday , 7 brownies for me with craig bagging a rainbow in the 3 that he tempted later in the day ( much to his relief ) . The new floating line ( gt90 ) has been loaded onto the fladen spool all ready for the next trip out . Thanks again for the help and advise given for free and most welcome  :z16. Also , i would like to thank the guy on the bank , forgot his name on here but mike knows who it is , for the advice given on what lure and how to fish it as i landed 6 using his plan ...cheers  :z14.

looking forward to my next visit ,

Cheers ,

Mike G .
