Weekly Fishing Report - Nature's Fickle Finger

On Sunday it was quite intriguing to look at the high definition screens, in the comfort of the conservatory restaurant at Lochter Fishery, Oldmeldrum and see pictures of the Lochter Ospreys high up on their nest and covered in snow. Great big flakes that went on for hours, chilling the whole place.

You could not help but wonder what they were thinking “Oh this is very picturesque” or “ I told you we should have stayed in the warm south for another fortnight”.

I suspect that the latter was foremost thought and it goes to show that even the sharpest minds in nature can be caught out by the unexpected vaguries of the weather .

It certainly caught a number of anglers out . Those who had been delayering were forced to bring out the thermals again and the big drop in temperature forced a rethink on angling tactics.

At the start of the week the weather was nice and Ian Hutchison had fourteen on a mixture of damsels, buzzers and even dries. Lenny Davidson one of the famous “Mc Duffers” netted eleven on cormorants, Albert Trail & Bob Ingram twelve and eight respectively on PTN’S.

This was the pattern but the arrival of the snow meant a return to Lures, Blobs & Bloodworms. Walter Senior had twelve, Peter Wilson eleven and David Taylor Jnr eight using various combinations of the above. This is likely to be the picture for the week as nature points an icy fickle finger at us yet again.
