TEN ANGLERS fished for the newly renamed George Nicoll Pairs at Carlogie Dam Fishings on Sunday.
The winners, Ally Stewart, Dundee, and Frank Ferrier, Arbroath , had an impressive 40 fish between them for a total weight of 113lbs 12ozs. Frank’s best was an 18lbs rainbow that he returned.
In second place with 33 fish were Dave Moodie and Colin Fairweather, both Carnoustie, with a total weight of 95lbs 1oz, Dave returned a 7lbs rainbow.
Third were Dave Roy, Barnhill, and Bruce Thompson, Arbroath, with 31 fish between them weighing 85lbs 2ozs. Bruce returned a 17lbs rainbow. The heaviest fish went to George Nicoll which weighed 5lbs 4ozs in a bag weighing 12lbs 4ozs.
On catch and release were Colin Cameron, Dundee, 20 plus on buzzers; George Woods, Montrose, 17 on buzzers; Fraser Robertson, Forfar, 20 plus on buzzers; and Andy O’Rourke, Dundee, 17 on a Paddy Rae.
SUMMER seems to have arrived early this year at Forbes of Kingennie with unseasonably high temperatures making the fishing quite interesting.
The Boathouse has still fished well to lures but smaller flies have been the way forward. The orange blob has taken some fish but the black buzzers have been the most consistent.
The Bankside has been quite fussy with most fish falling to buzzers and dries.
The Burnside has been the most consistent pond with fish falling to all methods. Small damsels and white cats on an intermediate line have taking a lot of fish. Again black buzzers have been lethal. Mr Ian Ferguson had a unexpected result when he took seven rainbows and a 10lb common carp all on a home tied black buzzer.
The Woodside pool’s level has dropped but the fishing has still been very productive.
