How things can change in a week in fishing as weather became what it should be and fish took advantage and so did the angler to make what was a very busy week.Some very good returns were recorded with a variety of tactics which for most of the week needed to be close or on top of the water for fish to look at a fly.Late evenings and early mornings, fish were topping on the surface and it was ideal for the dry fly,later , it was onto blobs and damsels but fished free line and without an indicator did much better as the returns showed.The message taken over the week clearly was that using the same method every time you go fishing will see one or two fish landed as the normal,but often change to a new method to the way you would fish will result in a lot more sport and fish .Here is some examples of that.Kevin Boyle a relatively new angler had 26 fish on a yellow blob free lined on a floating line,Tom Webster 30,Wullie Olsen 26 on a mix of blobs,dries and okey dokeys,Craig McColl 17,Ian Bancroft with 12 fish ,his best at 7lbs 7ozs,Neill Smith had 5 best at 6lbs 11ozs,Jimmy Rhind 11 ,Dave Simpson 10,Scott Burness had a fish of 4lbs,David King a 4lb 10 zs fish and best of the week went to Graeme Adamson with his personal best of 9lb 12ozs.Steve Junar had a nice Tiger trout which was returned.

The weekend tying and open event was both busy and very tireing but worthwhile as many enjoyed the events with families and children experiencing catching a fish.Most took advantage of hints and tips from Ian Christie and Flybox uk and then put them to use on the lochs and the shop has plenty of materials on sale for anyone who knows the products.Cakes and BBQ were busy and we really have to thank those special people who helped make it a success.Fiona Anderson who made cakes ,W MacLemans butchers in Lossiemouth for the burgers and sausages,all those who did the stands and helped see that the kids caught and enjoyed their fishing,but most of all we must mention a young lady who made fantastic cakes and sold them to visitors and donated the money raised to Fishing for tom charity which the event was for and raised an amazing 40 ,well done Bethany Smith you did really well and you should be very proud of yourself.Thanks also to everyone who supported the event and to the young girl who caught a tagged fish in the bait pond.All of you are fantastic.The money raised goes toward helping and encouraging children and disabled veterans enjoy the outdoors and fishing and anyone is welcome to contact the charity along with schools who the charity has worked for many years with and won many plaudits and awards for the work they have done.

Coarse loch

Fishing is doing very well now with warmer conditions and most are getting really good returns with plenty of roach,bream,perch,ide and carp.Red maggot being the best bait and the pole the best of the methods.The next coarse competition is on the 12th July and places left are limited and on a first come first served.These are proving quite popular and a good place for those learning coarse angling.

Millbuies trout fishery.

Anglers continued to enjoy some good top of the water sport on the lochs with some beautiful browns being caught and plenty of acrobatic blues leading everyone a merry dance.The lochs are in great condition and Joe Galloway had a beauty of a Blue at 5lbs.Best flies have been buzzers and traditional patterns and both lochs have produced well.We now have 5 boats with another to go in soon making 6 available for clubs and the normal 4 boats for day angling.Its good to see that the lochs are getting excellent reports from anglers on the fishing and quality of fish which makes it worthwhile for everyone to enjoy.

Bethany Smith a very special lady who made cakes for the weekend event and donated the money to the Fishing for Tom charity.Well done your a credit to everyone Bethany.
