The past week has again been dominated by a lack of meaningful rainfall and a persistent north/north east breeze. These conditions coupled with intermittent sunshine and a full day of sun on Wednesday led the fish to be feeding at different depths and, at times, proving very evasive to contact. Overall most anglers managed to land catches with the best recorded being;

A Murray, Gardenstown who enjoyed a week’s holiday on the water and landed a total of 83 fish for his six days outings using a yellow fritz and a white nomad.

N Thomson, Turriff, 14 fish, (bloodworm/buzzers), C Watt, St Fergus, 14 fish, (wet flies/WSW), I Watt, Turriff, 10 fish, (buzzers), M Burnett, Gardenstown, 10 fish, (cat’s whiskers), K Reid, Gardenstown, 9 fish, (buzzers), C Field, Fraserburgh, 8 fish, (buzzers), D Stewart, Aberdeen, 7 fish, (montana/buzzers).

The coming week promises a continuation of the same weather although some days may see a slight drop in temperature. The conditions however remain favourable and hopefully lead to continued good catches.
