Lochter Report - Sunshine after the Rain at Lochter
« on: October 15, 2019, 13:53:42 PM »
Down Lochter way after the previous week of drab awfulness the weather perked up considerably giving us a prolonged period of sunny loveliness, which was enhanced by it bringing out the golden backdrop of the now mature woodland that surrounds Lochter, combined with some sumptuous sunsets over our Bennachie vista. It reminded me of the line ‘I see the turning of a leaf, dancing in an autumn sun and brilliant shades of crimson glowing, when the day is done!’

As if drawn from their homes by the heat of the sun we had an eager band of regulars ready to do battle in the idyllic autumn conditions that lasted throughout the week.

Peter Young fished the Muckle Troot for his day and was rewarded with over 20 fish, all caught on the blob.

Ronnie Ewen, on his two outings, was in double figures also using either damsels, diawl bachs or spiders and he had a lovely 5lb brownie, which was returned to fight another day.

Fishing buddies Albert Trail and Bill Wood you could say ‘mopped up’ as they both fished the new fangled mop fly with Albert getting 19 fish and Bill got 12.
Jim Stephen from Newmachar on a day when it was a nice ripple on the water fished near the top on spiders and cormorants and this got him 11 fish one of them being a fine specimen, which was 9lb in weight.

Looking through the Returns Book – Jim Gilmore had 9 fish between 2 and 9lb on either the bunny leech or spiders, John Maybury from Aberdeen also had 9 on buzzers, D Johnson had 8 on black lures, Simon Ruddiman had 8 on lures and Walter Senior had 7 on his own WSW.

So all in all a fine weeks fishing in pleasant conditions:- long may it last!

Tight lines,

S.P 15/10/19.
