Tactics key at Turriff venue
DELGATIE CASTLE: This past week has been quite difficult for anglers at the Turriff fishery with the fish up and down through the water column and the necessity to change lines and end tackle to meet these demands. Dry fly activity has been quite low with most catches being rewarded immediately sub surface on wet flies and buzzers or at greater depths on various lures. However, despite the conditions, creditable performances were achieved. Best catches over the week were recorded by A Murray, of Gardenstown, who had 27 on a Cat’s Whisker, while S Conlan, of Stuartfield, tempted 11 with a bloodworm. M James, of Lancaster, brought to the net 14 while fish an olive nymph and L Davidson, of Macduff, landed seven on a Cormorant. N Thomson, of Turriff, also had seven, this time on buzzers. C Field, of Fraserburgh, had six on a spider pattern and E Quirie, of Turriff, six on buzzers.
