Glen of Rothes trout and Coarse fishery.

This week continued with consistant good fishing with only a couple of days where fish were a little fickle as temperatures dropped quickly overnight and it was the first days of the beetles and fish were very quick to take advantage of them.Evenings,as any winds died down they came to the top and dry fly fishing was very good sport.Still not the scene of summer dry fishing but it is slowly showing all the signs.Despite this anglers are certainly enjoying the fishing and the fish are fighting well and some still being broken as fish wont give themselves up easy.Best of the week was a beautiful full finned Blue rainbow of 10lbs for Bob Sutherland who also had a fish of 8lb 10ozs,John Smith had a good fish of 11lbs,7lbs and 6lbs on his day out,Ronnie Milne had a fish of 12lbs among his 6.Catches of fish upto 9lbs were caught by John Fraser 7lb 5oz,Mervin Michie 8lbs,Hazel Clark 6lb 12oz and a 4lb 8oz Blue,Peter Carey 9lb,Paul mellon on his first outing fly fishing had a fish of 7lbs 1ozs,Kev Middlemiss 7lb 13ozs,Moira Fielding 6lb 13oz,Alan Mitchell 8lb 1oz,Elliot Kendal 4lb 2oz,Geoffry kendall 4lb 2oz,M Tsuchiya from Japan had fish of 5lbs,Nicky Brmener had 2 Blues each just around 4lbs among his 12 fish,Grant Henderson had 11 fish with his best at 8lb 8oz, and youngster 11yr old Thomas Jack had a nice fish of 4lbs.

Coarse loch

This week the fishing has been very good with anglers catching good bags of roach,ide,gudgeon,rudd,bream and carp.Barry Evans and Kevin Mcdonnell did very well with the ide,bream and Roach with both taking good weights,Paul Nash had rudd,ide and gudgeon,John Allsopp using soft pellet had carp to 3lbs and rudd,Mark Barsby also took carp to 3lbs and ide.Others had a mixture and it was down to choice of bait and method used which determined the rates of success.Maggots,soft pellet were the best baits and method feeders a good pick to get fish.In the warmer temps carp are now coming to the surface which is a good sign.
