Lochter Report - Variety is the Ticket at Lochter

At certain times of year particular flies or methods work best and are favourites with anglers. Now that autumn is upon us, temperatures are dropping and there is a huge choice of natural food available for the trout. As a consequence anglers are using a wide variety of methods to successfully attract the fish.
Dave Mackay from Kintore used a green pea and black buzzers as conditions changed to connect with thirteen fish including one nice brown trout while Sandy Carrol of the Frigate Bar anglers tempted eight using buzzers and dancers. Brown trout are featuring more and more on the catch list as they are feeding themselves up for winter with several in the 3/4lb class coming to the net.
There have been big hatches of crane flies (Daddy long legs) round the lochs and these get blown on to the water tempting the trout. M Slessor from Aberdeen  used artificial daddies and had eight trout to his name while J Rench  used a combination of  minkies and daddies to keep three and release ten. Kevin Neri had ten on cormorants and M Cavan six on bibios.
Evenings have continued  to be productive with dries and buzzers working best. Simon Jackson  had nine and fishing buddy Phil Wood seven on one very calm evening session using what they described as big dries which the fish attacked ferociously.
Prospects continue to look good with plenty of surface action to keep anglers on the alert.
