Brown `s Sparkling Performance in Guy Fawkes Competition.
With the Heron Loch partly frozen a last minute switch was necessary on to the Osprey Loch and the Muckle Troot before the thirty enthusiastic anglers could cast off in the Guy Fawkes Singles competition at Lochter Fishery Oldmeldrum on Sunday.
It was a beautiful frosty day with not a breath of wind to ruffle the surface of the water. The cold top layers pushed the trout down deep and  anglers had to use sinking lines to get quickly to the fish particularly on the  Muckle Troot.
When the scores were tallied up the winner was adjudged to be John Brown with ten fish for eighteen points closely followed by Leslie Mess with sixteen points. Four anglers were tied on ten points for third place, Richard Mc Hattie, Paul Toseland, Kevin Neri  and Tommy Graham  with Richard getting the nod having caught the first fish.
A very enjoyable day was had by all and the next competition will be a “mystery pairs” in December, weather permitting.
On Saturday it was nice to welcome the Frigate Bar Anglers to Lochter who put up what can be best described as a spirited performance on a cold day .Frequent visits were made back to the Bothy Bar for a warmer or two and as the day progressed some found the comfort of the wood burning stove just too tempting !.
During the week the conditions varied with some days being reasonably mild particularly around the middle of the day. John Weston used buzzers and nymphs to tempt nine fish with the best at four pounds. R Innes and B Innes had fourteen between them all on buzzers while fritz  montana`s were the choice of Bill Reed who was rewarded with eight nice fish. C Murdoch and Mike Frost had seven each using  wsw`s and E Ross used yellow blobs to bring six to the net.
At the time of writing most of the water is ice free and the forecast is for milder weather to come in which should quickly clear the rest so anglers should be set for some steady sport.
