Favourable week at Delgatie

Share this article

AS predicted last week the weather has been favourable this week and good catches have been recorded. at Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery.

An increasing number have been landed from the dry fly, but predominantly sub surface tackle has been very rewarding, with most anglers retrieving quickly. Having said that, a good quantity of fish have still succumbed to various lures and bloodworm derivatives fished slowly.

The best recorded catches this week have been:

P. Cowie of Fraserburgh (46 fish, nymphs/spiders/buzzers); A. Gibson of Gardenstown (36 fish, wsw lures); A. Alexander of Turriff (22 fish, buzzers); J. Mackay of Macduff (20 fish, lures); Z. Hall of Macduff (16 fish, bloodworm); N. Thomson of Turriff (14 fish, buzzers); G. Wright of Buckie (11 fish, damsel nymph) and I. Watt of Turriff (11 fish, buzzers).

Not to be outdone by the gents, Jocelyn Milne from Whitehills landed 12 fish on the Bloodworm on her second outing.

Hopefully this week’s weather will hold up to the current forecast and will see increasing surface activity with the dry fly giving good morning and evening activity.

The fishery is now open from 8am til 8pm and bookings are not necessary. Boat hire, rod and other tackle is available for hire. For all information call Bob on 07980 999 006.
