Lochter Report - Damsel Delight
« on: March 31, 2014, 12:14:39 PM »
It was not the sight of fair maidenís at the Fishery this week that was the cause of the delight but the effectiveness of that  mainstay  fly which most fishers have a variant of  :- the damsel. It comes in varying sizes and hues and they were on display  on many a rod to good effect this week.
With the colder wind most fish were further down in the water than in previous weeks but it didnít prevent some pretty decent returns for the conditions.
On the damsel front , Ian Low had 10 fish for his day , Jim Will from Newmachar had 9 , Les Harris form Aberdeen had 11 , Bill Reid from Ellon had 7 and Colin Mutch had 9.
There were plenty other methods being used and a look through the returns book shows that John Maybury from Aberdeen had 7 fish on nomads, T Teil had 8 on buzzers, Mike Frost had 7 fish, one a nice brownie of 4lb, all on a yellow dancer. A Murdoch had 8 fish to the net on a black tadpole, Jamie McHardy had 6 on a black bunny leech and Paul Prockter from Aberdeen tempted 7 to his net using a WSW then a Rob Roy lure.
