Willie Harley and fishing buddy Ron Lessells were up from Fife for a few days fishing and decided visit Lochter.

Over two highly-successful and enjoyable days they caught and released 63 trout including some “Right Big Yins”.

They used a combination of green Buzzers and Blobs to good effect.

Buzzers have worked well for others, Bryan Ross had nine, Paul Rhind, six, F Thrall eight, Nathan Hutchison seven and S Sinclair nine - all on Buzzers.

A variety of other flies have also been successful.

Mick Gormley used naturals and shipmands to account for 10.

Montana Nymphs and Dancers worked for S Williams with nine while Bob Duncan had a good day with 12 attracted by a blend of hoppers and Bibios.

Roadworks are blocking the route between Oldmeldrum and Lochter this week so anglers should use the Inverurie road and follow the signs.
