Good fishing at Delgatie Castle

The past week has seen anglers enjoy good fishing conditions although at times the breeze proved problematic.

While the lure fishermen still enjoyed good sport the emergence of the dry fly with increased surface activity was very noticeable and, for the short periods the dry fly activity ceased, buzzers, nymphs and wets proved very productive.

Best recorded catches this week fell to:

A. Murray, Gardenstown (33 fish, black nomad, black and green fritz); P. Keir, Fyvie (31 fish, various lures, wet flies); A. Gibson, Gardenstown (26 fish, yellow dancer); R. Yearnshire, Aberdeen (15 fish, diawl bach, okay dokey); P. Broadley (Ellon, 12 fish, damsel nymph, buzzers); B. Burnett, Turriff (11 fish, dry flies); P. McCrimon, London (9 fish, damsel nymph); C. Field, Fraserburgh (8 fish, buzzers); C. Prentice, Aberdeen (8 fish, damsel nymph); N. Thomson, Turriff (8 fish, buzzers); B. Campbell, Aberdeen (8 fish, dry flies).
