26 Sep Ledcrieff Report | An Epic BIG Fish Week
It’s fair to say that this past week will go down as one to remember at Ledcrieff.
With good numbers of rods on most days, over 30 fish above 6lb were caught including several tipping 10lb. In addition to these fish, many rods were well in to double figures with the average size now tipping the scales at 4lb.
We have lots of big blues, browns and rainbows in the loch with sport fast and furious pretty much all the time. Dry flies, cdc’s and lures are working well with the floating line still being the order of the day.
With the cooler weather at night, fish are in chasing mode and can be seen making large bow waves regularly when fishing fast subsurface, all heart stopping stuff.
Notable anglers from the past week have been Robert Kippen, Colin Shepherd & Gordon Tait who all caught well in to double figures. Jumbo browns have been showing up in catches although none of the 9lb – 10lb fish have been caught yet.

See you on the water,
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!!!
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.
