John Easdale had an excellent day up at Dunoon Reservoir recently and caught this nice plump rainbow trout, he said “it hit my Kate McLaren like a train” John also emphasised he limits his catch to that which is necessary as his family love fresh trout !
Well done John and thanks for the photographs .. tight lines !
Drove past Loch Tarsan today and this was the water level, a vast difference to March this year, couldn’t get another drop of water in the loch ! No problems with fishing the bank now, still six weeks of the brown trout season left to go ….
get up there and get fishing !
Bob Clark was up the River Ruel today and caught this nice wee sea trout, it’s his first this season and was around the 1lb mark, it took a size 12 stoats tail, the fish was safely returned to the river … well done Bob !
6 competitors fished with 4 weighing in. The weather – warm and bright, overcast with rain at the last hour of the competition. All anglers enjoyed their day out. Keith Mackenzie came to cast a line, his first of the year, good to see him back.
Winner: Lee Lindop who had 6 fish, next Harry Lindop 3 fish, followed by Ron Ganley 2 fish.
Lee Lindop is the overall winner of the Mackenzie Trophy and the trophy for the largest fish caught in the competition, Lee has the privilege of fishing the SANACC National 2020.
Ronnie Ganley and Lee Lindop were out on Loch Eck on Friday, conditions were bright and very calm, Ronnie caught this nice grilse while trawling lures, it was safely returned to the water to continue its journey, sea trout were also caught on the day.
The annual match with Dunrod Angling Club was today 27th July, Dunrod won the day by 6 fish to 5, a great time was had by all who fished and the rain didn’t dampen their spirits. The Thompson Trophy was donated by a member of the Dunrod Club who was also a member of DDAC (for 67 years) sadly passed away recently, so it was fitting that it went back to them this year.
Cheers from Dunrod
Hard work fishing
A happy President
