Lochter Report - Plenty of Action at Lochter
« on: July 14, 2015, 15:57:25 PM »
Even when you are not catching there is nothing like a big swirling rise of a trout, right in front of you to buck up your spirits and renew your determination to tempt that fish.

At Lochter Fishery, Oldmeldrum there have been plenty of fish head and tailing on the surface and tempting anglers.

It required a bit of experimenting to find a formula which works, but those anglers who got it right had a great time.

Not surprisingly, dry flies had their moments but at times fish were taking a few inches down and refused the surface dries so anglers had to go down with anything from buzzers to blobs to be successful.

M. Crawford mixed and matched blobs, buzzers and diawl bachs to tempt eleven. Also scoring eleven was Jonathan Dainel from Peterhead who persisted with buzzers. S. Murdoch netted eight on cormorants and the two Cheethams had seventeen between them. Steve Prince used a mix of blobs and dries to grass nine and Michael McLennan used his home tied sedge dries to land ten.

Most anglers managed to catch fish but the top scorers were Peter Young who had twenty for his day wing WSW’s and okay dokeys and the experienced Andrew Barrowman who caught and released twenty-one on dries and blobs.

A mixed week of weather is forecast which is good news for anglers.
