Great start to 2014 at Lochter

Lochter Fishery got off to an excellent start in 2014 with plenty of anglers out.

The weather was mixed but generally kind. All the lochs have been open, no ice in evidence and plenty of feisty trout to be caught.

Scottish team member Steve Corsar had a fine day catching and releasing 11 on Cormorants. Buzzers worked for Ross Middleton who had a nice four pounder in his bag of nine while Bill Emslie had a five pounder among his bag of eight tempted by a mix of Cormorants and Buzzers.

Catches of eight were recorded by S Cowie, M Skene, and A Murdoch with Bloodworms and Tadpoles working well. Top scorer over the week was Doug Mair who had a terrific day, netting 15 mainly on Blobs.

There were plenty of bags of five and six, so by and large most anglers have got off to a flying start to 2014 and the staff at Lochter will do their best to see that this success is maintained by ensuring that the fishery is well stocked with quality trout and providing sound advice on how to catch them.

Lochter are holding the popular Robbie Burns Pairs event on Sunday, January 26, at 9am. Lunch will be provided and as is traditional, the haggis will be addressed at lunchtime.
