The early part of the week and the end of the week have provided good conditions at the fishery but Thursday and Friday were too windy for successful angling. Furthermore we added to the fish stock on Friday so that tis week anglers should experience productive fishing conditions.
Seven members of the Benedictine Angling Club held a competition on Saturday which was won by Ian Macauther who had 12 Rainbow trout to the boat. His winning catch weighed 14lb.12oz. Second was Adam Calvin and third Jimmy Calvin who also caught the heaviest fish, weighing in at 3lb.2oz.
Heaviest fish of the week was a blue trout, caught by Mr. Purves of Forres who visited on Tuesday.
We were visited by 26 rods who caught 59 rainbow, 1 blue and 2 brown trout. £6 of these fish were successfully returned to the water.
Best fly patterns: Black Pennel, Hare’s Ear, Dabbler, CDC dries, F fly, Lures.
