Lochter Report - Eleven Top the Role at Lochter
« on: May 05, 2015, 11:45:19 AM »
Over the past many, many weeks politicians of all parties have been making us promises, most of which they won’t keep. All manner of goodies, just round the corner.
It is a pity that they have not included in their list of special offers, vat free fishing.
This would give a much needed boost to our salmon rivers and would encourage more people to get out into the fresh air of the countryside, enjoy some stress reducing mild exercise and save the NHS a fortune.

Considering that angling remains the most popular participative sport it is a surprise that some sharp young contender has not come up with it.

In the anglers bothy at Lochter Fishery, Oldmeldrum, discussion has been focused on Kate McLaren who as far as we are aware is not standing for election and Walters secret weapon which, as far as we are aware is not being used to threaten or cajole potential voters.

The secret weapon (WSW) did well for Peter Wilson who had ten on Saturday and Sandy Anderson who netted twelve in terrible conditions on Sunday. Bill Gibb had a great day using a mix of blobs, daddies and buzzers he tempted twenty-one but when the returning officer checked the rewards topping the poll was the master of the flick retrieve, Robbie Ewen who used cormorants and buzzers to catch and return thirty one nice fish. The Kate McLaren was one of the small nymphs used by Lochter regular Alan Logan who had ten to his name.
Robert MacPherson although new to angling was delighted to land ten on his cast of buzzers and the same flies did well for Alan Gordon, A.Brown and Peter Young.

The forecast is for more changeable weather, which will certainly keep the fish on the move but will make fishing method and fly selection a bit more tricky.
