    08 December 2020Posted in

    Down Lochter way last week, weather-wise it veered from hard unrepentant frost to deluges of despairing rain. Both these conditions cause the fish to alter their feeding habits and as a result a bit of experimentation from your normal fishing methods can sometimes be called for.

  • Lochter Report – It’s a Vote Winner at Lochter

    17 November 2020Posted in

    Down Lochter way last week it was not the supposed Presidential Shenanigans that was at the forefront of fishers minds but we did get a ‘vote of thanks’ for the Tiger and Brook trout we recently stocked. We had a lot of favourable feedback and this on top of last weeks further stocking of our own home grown ‘Lochter’ trout means there is an array of Formidable foes to target with the biggest challenge being to get them safely to the net. Many have tried but failed so think seriously about upgrading your leader strength if you are thinking of paying us a visit.

  • Weekly Fishing Report - It' A Jungle Out There!

    Weekly Fishing Report - It' A Jungle Out There!

    03 November 2020Posted in

    Down Lochter way last week it wasn’t quite the case that we let the manicured grounds of Lochter grow wild but we did introduce a formidable jungle foe to the fray.

    Those of you of a ‘certain age’ will well remember the advertising slogan which told you to “put a tiger in your tank”:- well we took it a step further and put some tigers in our ponds. These were of course some lovely tiger trout, which we stocked into our two front ponds along with some Brook Trout also.

    We did them as a thank you to our regular customers giving them something different to cast for in these otherwise difficult and uncertain times. Another challenge on top of trying to land our own home-grown Lochter trout, which are still providing great sport with line breakages still very much to the fore.

    One person who had no such troubles was Paul Ingram for Newmachar who during his 8 hour session used everything from dry flies to bunny leeches, as the circumstances dictated and this secured him 18 fish to the net. One fish was over 10lb and he was the first to land one of our Tiger trout.

    John Petrie fished a team of buzzers all day and it stood him in good stead as he landed 15 fish.

    Ian Lindsay had 14 fish using cat’s whiskers, Lewis Ross 12 on nymphs and small yellow lures and Steve MacGowan had 13 fish alternating between cat’s whiskers, diawl bachs and a black fab.

    James Riddell used a red and black lure to good effect as it got him 9 fish and other effective lures were the Dawsons olive nomad, a hothead damsel and the ever-reliable black WSW.

    To conclude, there is an old Chinese saying which goes “In waking a tiger, use a long stick,” You will be able to catch one with any length of rod at Lochter but just check your knots.

    Tight lines,

    S.P 3/11/20.

  • Lochter Report – Level Pegging at Lochter

    20 October 2020Posted in

    Down Lochter way last week there continued to be a lot of our home grown trout in the 3-8lb category being caught and we again had great feedback from our customers about the terrific fight being put up by our Lochter trout no doubt helped by the greater depths and distance they have available to run to in all three ponds. There were also a fair amount of double figure trout being brought to the net to fight another day as well as the ones that were ‘released at distance’ which getting broken is now sympathetically known. So all in all we had a lot of happy fishers out enjoying the challenge.
