We are looking at the ususal Menteith (June ?) followed by Harelaw fishery, Neilston (September ?) Harelaw is a top of the water fishery, mostly, the deepest part is the dam at aprox.12ft. No dates have been fixed yet ! We are looking for an early response from members for these outings so we can get an idea of boat bookings numbers. This is not a deposit booking but a heads up on members that might want to go. Please contact Bill Rankin before the New Year, either by email or leave a message in the comments section on this post.
Not the biggest, but caught these on Saturday on the Ruel and a 3rd that leapt back into the water before its picture could be taken. The fish not pictured was about 2lbs, but couldn’t determine what it was. Thought it was a Brownie, are there Browns of this size in the Ruel, can anyone confirm. The river was running just nice. Fish were returned. ….. Graeme Henry.
The Loch Eck Competition went ahead between the 02/10/21 and 09/10/21, there was a very poor number of entrants considering the number of members within Dunoon and District Angling Club. A total of six members took part with only two 12 inch sea trout being caught on Tuesday by member Keith McKenzie. No one fished Saturday the 2nd and Monday the 4th , Wednesday the 6th or Friday the 8th. Tom and Graeme Henry fished hard on the Thursday with no fish caught Allan Miller, Bill Rankin and Joe Docherty fished on Saturday the 9th with only small brown trout to show for their efforts. All in all it had been a very bad year for the whole of Scotland partly due to the long hot summer and very low water. Ah well there is always next year !
Frandy : six members fished Frandy on Saturday 11th Sept. There was 5 fish caught and 5 fish on and off the hook. A difficult day was had by all the anglers at Frandy, as a number of them came off the water stating this fact. Overall winner of both outings – Lee Lindop Heaviest fish over both outings – Ron Ganley
