Friday the 14th of June was the Moth competition on Loch Tarsan. Weather wise conditions were perfect at the start with a light wind although there was some unexpected rain. The wind steadily picked up until about 20.30pm when it dropped and by 21.30 it had completely gone. Seven members turned up and 5 opted to fish boat house bay and two walked round to the opposite side. There were 3 Black Throated Divers spotted sitting out on the loch, just goes to show what wildlife can be seen at the Loch. Members started to arrive back at the boat house from 10pm onwards with Ronnie Ganley arriving back last after making a water stop to cool down his feet. A good bit of banter was had with valuable information of killer flies and tactics were exchanged between the competitors . Altogether 20 fish were weighed in for a total of 14lb 12oz giving a average of 12oz. The results are as follows 1st place Lee Lindop with 10 fish for 7lb 6oz Lee walked around the opposite side and fished Traditional flies on a sinking line . 2nd place was Ronnie Ganley with 5 fish for 3lb 8oz Ronnie also walked around to the other side and fished muddlers on a sinking line. 3rdplace was David Halliday with 2 fish for 1lb 12oz David stayed in boat house bay and fished a floating line with dries. Many thanks to all members who fished the Moth competition and any new members wishing to fish any of the Tarsan competitions are always welcome. Hopefully some new members will make themselves available for the next Tarsan competition next Saturday the 22ndJune.
On Thursday 6 June, President Davy Landsburgh and Club Members celebrated the launching of our new Coulam Defender 15 rowing boat – our newest asset. The launching was delayed due to lack of water but now all 4 boats are ready for fishing. The photos show the launching ceremony and the new boat attached to the mooring ropes.
The new boat is now at it’s moorings, therefore help is no longer needed tomorrow evening at Tarsan, a big thanks to all who offered to help.
Sightings of Osprey have been observed on both Dunoon Reservoir and at Loch Loskin recently so keep your eyes open for this … just hope he/she has purchased a permit at the paint shop and filled in the returns 🙂
Just a gentle reminder to those members who have not paid their annual subscription fee , this is due by June 1st, and is the same price as last year which is £100.
