Weekly Fishing Report - Autumn Equinox

Down Lochter way, this week heralds in the arrival of the Autumn Equinox when the sun crosses the celestial equator and we have equal amount of daylight and darkness.

This is normally the time when the fish acutely sense the change and they start to feed greedily to stock up for the long drab dreary despondent and desolate winter ahead.

On a happier note it has meant that there has been some great sport to be had.

Our recent re-stocking with our ‘growthy’ home grown troot ensured some highly enjoyable rod bending action for those who ventured out.

Lots of anglers in high double figures including Alan Paterson on lures, Norman Fletcher on wotsits, fabs and damsels and George Reid on yellow dancers and cat’s whiskers.

Ronnie Ewen fished all three lochs in his session and he brought 15 fish to the net on his home-tied small black cormorants.

Peter Wilson had a great day getting 14 fish mainly on the black bunny leech; Steve Frost stuck to the WSW lure and had 14 fish with black and olive ones.

Mike McLennan stayed on top of the water and an assortment of dry flies got him 13 fish and Chris Westland used black ants or a foam beetle to get his 11 fish.

Other returns were James West on 12 fish using black and olive lures, Fred McCally on 11 with small nymphs, Albert Cowie on 9 using small lures and Mike Stewart on 7 using minkies and snatchers.

So all in all a good time to be out fishing in delightful weather. Roll on the Vernal Equinox!

Tight lines,
