The English language is rich in words to describe the weather and Doric has an additional selection.
During the past week many of the choicest have been heard echoing round the banks of Lochter Fishery in Oldmeldrum.
As anglers struggled to cope with the conditions which nice people would describe as ‘unseasonably cold’.
In spite of the weather the trout did not seem to mind and were quite obliging.
Some appear to have noted Rangers F.C. return to the Premier League and used the Ally McCoist with a fair amount of success.
A Herba was top scorer with twenty to his name.
Also well up the scoring table was Daz Cooper with ten on a cats whisker/ diawl bach combination.
Dougie Mair fifteen on a semtex and Bill Ferries twelve on the same fly.
The smaller flies did also have their moments with Tom Murray and Ian Hutchison nine and eleven respectively on black buzzers.
We are now into May so hopefully things will warm up and there will be more fly hatches and more surface action to excite anglers.
