Lures get the Anglers Vote.                                                                 

While all around the country the good people were exercising their franchise and voting in councillors to best look after their interests at Lochter Fishery Oldmeldrum anglers were carefully considering what fly to use to best overcome the unseasonably cold conditions.
As the week progressed the weather got colder and colder resulting in comments like “baltic” and “perishing/snowy “ in the weather conditions column.There was little surface activity as the fly life vanished and fish retired to the depths to seek out a food source there.
Anglers quickly twigged that down deep was where they had to fish and the wsw’s,fritz,s and blobs rapidly appeared .Jock Ewing kept three for thirteen pounds and released eleven on wsw,s , A Murdoch had eleven on tadploes and blobs ,S Weir eight on nomads and blobs and  Kevin Martin fifteen on the ever effective wsw. During the better spells nymphs and cormorants came into their own. Ronnie Ewing tempted fourteen and Joe Paton up from Bo’ness nineteen, of which he kept three.C Western from Westhill fairly new to angling I suspect had a couple and in the fly used column in the fishery record wrote “ nae idea”.
The inter Legion competition was won by Bucksburn with Stonehaven in second place and on the competition scene the next heat of the SANA Scottish National Stillwater Championship is scheduled for Lochter this Saturday 12th May ,registration at 9am with the final set for 8th July at the Glen of Rothes Fishery.
The forecast for this week is mixed with things improving towards the end .
