A strong gusting wind combined with a high loch made fishing hard on Saturday, 24 June 2017 for the fourth Tarsan competition. Only six competitors came to the weigh in at the boathouse at 6pm and the top rod for the day was Lee Lindop with 10 fish at 5lb 8ozs. In second place was Bill Rankin, with 4 at 2lbs
The water was very high, making fishing from the bank very difficult and seven competitors came to the weigh in at the boat house at 11pm. The results are as follows:
Lee Lindop was top rod, with 8 fish at 4lb 3oz.
Second was Harry Lindop, with 3 fish at 1lb 9ozs.
Therefore Lee Lindop wins the Tarsan Moth competition for 2017
Lee Lindop with the heaviest fish of the outing to the Lake of Menteith, a perfect condition rainbow trout which weighed 6lb’s.
MENTEITH OUTING SAT 17 TH MAY 2017
14 members had a very productive day at Menteith. All but two caught fish with nothing under 2 lbs
The best catch for the first three fish was Lee Lindop at 10lbs 7ozs and second was Harry Lindop at 9lbs 9oz
Lee, the definitive fish charmer, caught 17 fish in total on the day, catch and return, How does he do it ??
All the fish caught were of excellent quality
As in the past the odd Pike was hooked and duly returned for the winter pike fishing season. Possibly we should arrange a winter Outing for Pike. Anybody interested please contact David Lilley.
The Oaktree Inn provided an attractive choice of dishes on the Menu and we could patronise them again if members were happy to repeat it
