03 Oct A Bumper Weekend on the Lochs
Another awesome week at Ledcrieff with a bumper weekend turnout.
Another fantastic week overall at Ledcrieff & Lairds Lochs, with anglers well in to double figures on most days with several fish in the 5lb – 9lb class coming off daily also. Dougie Inglis had a great day on Sunday with 16 and many more lost, Dougie comments “3 great fighting fish, photo does not do them justice as there about 6/7lb had a total 16 fish lost as many at the net , Would love to be there when the weather conditions are good!!!”
Brown trout are featuring well in the catches with the average size sitting at 2.5lb.
Tactics are still pretty much floating lines and dries, damsels & Buzzers. Orange blobs have been working well also.
The evening rises over that last few days have been nothing short of spectacular, this combined with the late season fry bashing has provided a spectacular site.
Lairds Loch (our any method fishery) has also been fishing well, with the weeks top rod landing 18.
Short Evening Tickets are still available for October starting at £11.
These are proving to be massively popular given the prolific hatches on the water. Why not come up and give it a bash before the clocks change.

Great days fishing today loved it nice and peaceful cheers Paul!!
Stunning Loch and fantastic top of the water fishing!!! 13 fish in 4 hours, largest 4lb.
One of the best scenic small water fisheries around Tayside. Deep water at one end and shallow at the other. Deep drop offs where fish love to lie & a dry fly heaven. Insect life is amazing. and when they lie low midge tips and intermediates do the trick. Damsel Heaven!!!
