Glen of rothes trout and coarse fishery

Apart from being a cold week those who did fish had a mix of fishing.Early on in the day fishing was good but afternoons slowed as the high sun and then shortness of the daylight took effect.Some had good fishing and some did struggle.Fish are now accumulating in certain areas which is normal during the winter months and the usual flies have been the norm for this time of year,Okey dokeys,woolie worms in red,bloodworms and white fritz and blobs being the pick.
Fish are on and off just as quick ,all down to time of year and temperatures.Floating and intermediate lines are both in use and required.
Some of the results this week were gary Gormley had 13 fish including 2 blues and a Tiger trout of 3lbs,Kev Middlemiss had 11,Don Booth had 2 Brown trout,Gordon Grant had 29 fish best at 4lbs plus and 2 Blues,Seamus Maguire had a fish of 6lbplus,JohnMain had a fish of 6lb 8ozs,Willie McRobbie had 9 fish his best around 10lbs,Neil Smith had 11,dave Simpson had 8,Chris Johnston had 8 including a tiger of 2lbs plus and george Flett had 7 fish.

On the coarse side,fish are still being caught with the occasional carp as John Langdon found with skimmers,gudgeon and roach being the main species around at this time of baits still remain being the pellet and maggot.

The Glenbuies flyfishers club is now up and running after Sundays meeting and there will be a meeting of members in February 2014.Membership is strictly by application only and these can be picked up from the secretary or from the fishery.
