Weekly Fishing Report - Dries and Buzzers Top Score at Lochter

There is nothing more exciting for anglers than to see trout rising and splashing on the surface and scooping flies off the top. Apart from providing reassurance that there are fish to catch it also presents anglers with the challenge of how to attract them to their artificial flies. Especially when there is a plethora of tasty naturals.

During the past week at Lochter Fishery Oldmeldrum, there has been plenty of surface activity and on the milder evenings the surface has been positively boiling .Bob Weir had in his words a “great night” netting fourteen on a black spider and other dries but Jim Brown had two exceptionally good days fishing. Using klinkhammer floaters he had twenty five and thirty one all safely returned. The same fly worked for Jim Ferguson who grassed eleven on the Muckle Troot loch while J Hay had thirteen and Steve Prince eleven. The Whytes had twelve between them and M Smith five on hoppers.

Buzzers have also been effective at times; Ron Ewen had a very good day with fourteen and S Mason twelve and while most of the action has been on the top of the water there have been some good bags from lures fished deeper. P Keir caught and released seventeen on wsw`s and fritz flies and Sam McLeod nine again on wsw`s.

Most anglers found the trout obliging and brand new angler Nathalia Reilly was delighted to land two fish while another newcomer to the sport W Brown broke his duck with three on a black nomad.
