Hi folks :cool:

The Haddo Brownies have been keen to chase flies near the surface again this week and Spiders, Crunchers, Pearly Pennell, Bibio, Bumbles, Snatchers, Corixa, Loch Ordie, Straggle Nymphs, Damsels and Hare's Ear Nymphs have been on the menu :wink

Michael MacPherson tempted 34 trout up to 2.5 lb for his session, Ewan Lindsay 26 up to 4 lb and 23 up to 2.5 lb on a second visit, Kev Danby had 25 up to 2.5 lb, Liam Stephen 16 up to 2.5 lb, Alex Burnett 15 up to 5 lb, Frank Thrall 14 up to 3 lb, Kenny Hall 13 up to 2 lb, Andrew MacPherson 12 up to 3 lb and Duncan Hepburn netted 11 fish up to 3 lb.

Jan Bowen released a cracking 6 lb Brown and Iain Morgan had another nice fish of 4 lb. The fishing is challenging, we had blanks, ones and twos in the catches again this week, but working things out is satisfying and can produce excellent sport like the above.

Best wishes
Mike
