EXCELLENT sport has been had at Rescobie Loch of late with quite a few blues being taken. Whilst they are only around the two pound mark when you hook one you know all about it. They put up a fantastic fight, similar; it is said, to a sea trout.
Hare’s lug, Kate McLaren and buzzers are taking a lot of fish with cat’s whisker and damsels also doing quite well. They are still lying down a bit but some rises are still being witnessed when that chill east wind drops.
