Glen of Rothes Trout and coarse fishery

Water coloured some this week with the change in temperature but it didnt stop the fishing being very good.Some good returns were recorded over the week as fish stayed high in the water and washing line methods worked well with buzzers and nymphs and lures in yellow and white did catch when conditions required through the change in the middle of the week.Blues upto 4lbs were caught and they fought well above their weight and gave anglers really good sport.Some examples of returns were,Ian Munro with a 4lb 6ozs fish on kate maclaren,Bill Hives had 7 with a 3lb 9oz,brother Phil had one of 3lb 15ozs,Ian Hutton had 15 on buzzers,Neil Smith had a great day on 37 fish his best at 4lb 4ozs,Kev Middlemiss had a 6lber returned and weighed in a 3lb 13ozs fish,Peter Collins had a nice Blue and a fish of 3lb 8ozs among his 7 fish for a couple of hours,Jamie Sinclair had a 4lb 3ozs on a cruncher and Jim Eddie had 12 on a yellow fritz.
