These conditions are not usually ideal, but for once it didn’t seem to put the fish ‘off the take’:- the result being there was a considerable list of double digit returns recorded in the book.
Those fortunate fishers included Paul Sharp who skillfully used a team of buzzers to bring 21 fish to the net. Likewise Graham Duthie had 21 fish using various lures and noted in returns book:- ‘As long as they are black.
Les Mess from Ellon had 18 fish using the new Chammois fly, while A Greig had a great day using damsels to account for 17 fish. Stuart Sim from Ellon had a good haul of 15 fish, all on buzzers and M Moodie took 14 fish, all on a green lure.
Mike Frost true to his name kept a cool head in the heat and landed 12 on the apply named hothead lures which were of various colours and A Greig did well using various damsels to account for 11 fish.
With the clocks having gone forward we are now open from 8am to dusk so why not take advantage of the excellent evening conditions that often arise.
