Senior/Junior Day at Lochter Fishery

Lochter Fishery, Oldmeldrum are teaming up with Somers Fishing Tackle, Aberdeen to stage a Senior/Junior Day on Sunday, March 29.

Mums, Dads, Grandas, Grannies, Uncles and Aunties can bring along a junior who will be introduced to fishing and will receive a new rod and reel courtesy of Somers.

The aim of the day is to encourage youngsters to try the healthy and happy sport of fishing.

Participants should contact Somers on 01224 210008 or Lochter Fishery on 01651 872787 or 872000.

Action continues at Lochter with the Trout Masters Final on Sunday, April 12, and the Spring Singles Competition on Sunday, April 19.

During the past week the water temperature has lifted slightly and the Buzzer fishing has become the favoured method.

Scott Ingles and Andy Thomson had 16 between them and top lady angler Lesley Johnston landed seven using a combination of black and olive Buzzers.

Pete Green had a great day catching a releasing 11, again all on Buzzers while a mix of Buzzers and Okey Dokey brought nine to the net of G Moir.

Lures did have their moments with John Laing grassing six on the WSW and Harry Connor seven on a Cats Whisker.

If as seems likely the conditions continue to warm up then the smallest flies, nymphs, Buzzers and eventually dries will perform better and better.
