Fifth Tarsan Competition 4th August
The loch was high enough for the last competition to take place. A dull and overcast day with a light wind, four members weighed in at the boathouse. The top rod on the day was Allan Miller with 10@ 6lb 11oz, well done Allan.
The winner of the P.J. Mackenzie Trophy was Lee Lindop with 28@ 17lb 5oz.
The Tarsan Cup went to Harry Lindop with a trout of 1lb
Well fished guys !
Over fifty’s, Wednesday 4 July 2018, luckily all members were fishing from boats as the loch was even lower than the last competition. After a very hot day eight members weighed in at 4pm, the winner was Keith Mackenzie with two fish at 12 ozs and Bill Duff had the heaviest fish weighing 12 ozs.
Fourth Tarsan competition 23rd June 2018, another warm day and the loch was low. Five members weighed in at 6pm at the boat house, all five caught fish. The top rod was Allan Miller with four fish at 2lbs 9 ozs.
A very poor turn out, only three members came to the weigh in and nine fish were weighed in.
After the long dry spell there was enough water for the competition to go ahead, there was very little wind which meant the midges were in their element.
The winner of the Moth competition was Allan Miller with four trout at 2lbs 3ozs.
The next Tarsan competition will be Saturday, 23rd June 2018.
