Angling

IT has been a good week for the anglers up at Lintrathen Loch, with limit bags still coming out and a few big fish with them.

Lintrathen regulars, with their local knowledge have done well, but in general, the Sawmill End has produced some of the best catches recently.

The flies which have taken fish were Silver Cormorants, Holograph Diawl Bachs, Silver Invicta and small Damsels.

Intermediate lines have been the choice of many with Sink Tips also taking fish.

The Scottish Water now has the Aerator back on, and anglers are requested to keep their distance from it.
