Good catches

THE INCLEMENT weather has certainly had an effect on the angling up at Lintrathen Loch over the past weeks. Whilst many anglers have blanked on the colder days, those who have persevered with lures on these days and buzzers and small flies on the better days have had some good catches.

The fish seem to be well down during the early part of day then coming up to about a foot from the surface later on. Nymphs, buzzers and small gold headed flies have taken fish under the surface while Cormorants and various black lures have done well at deeper levels.

The East of Scotland Open Pairs were fished on Sunday with the winners being B. Robertson and A. Ramshaw with five fish for 7lbs 10ozs. Runners-up were R. Mather and P. Moir with six fish for 7lbs.

Club results: Leslie and Glenrothes AC, four boats, 20 fish for 34lbs 13ozs; Pitcarmick AC, four boats, 32 for 61lbs; Bank of Scotland (East) five boats, 24 for 39lbs 13ozs; Change Fly Fishers, two boats, 10 for 19lbs.

Individual boats: A. McAlister and A. Robertson, 10 fish for 18lbs 7ozs; G. Milne and G. McKenna, five for 7lbs; Paul Chambers and P. Hastie, 10 for 16lbs 14ozs; Moira and Stuart Ferrier, seven for 12lbs; Andy Forster, five for 8lbs; Campbell Wilson, five for 7lbs; Neil Duff, five for 7lbs 8ozs; A. Doig and Partner, nine for 15lbs; Peter Auchterlonie and partner, 10 for 16lbs 2ozs; D. Purvis and partner, six for 9lbs 8ozs.
