Hi folks
Damsels, black spiders, bibio, buzzers, bloodworm and mini cats have continued to to be productive at Haddo this week  :wink:

All seven anglers in the Bristow Helicopters outing enjoyed great sport, keeping 15 fish for 56 lb 4 oz giving an average weight of 3 lb 12 oz. A total of 74 fish were caught on the day, Brian Pickles tempting 16, Graham Chiverton 15, Pete Lay 12 and Frank Sangster 11, Richard Hambly weighing in the largest at 8 lb 4 oz.

Kevin Neri is the winner of the 2006 Haddo Summer League  :z14
