Bill Rankin and Allan Miller were out on Loch Tarsan on the opening day of 2020 season, these nice brownies were just some of the fish caught, all others were returned. The loch has not been stocked yet but as you can see there are still good fish to be caught.
Dear Members……The main double gate at the left hand side of the Col Dam ( small Dam ) is closed NO VEHICULAR ACCESS ALLOWED until further notice. This is due to a problem with the owner SSE.
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 !
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.
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

On Wednesday 3rd July, the “Over 50s” competition was held at Loch Tarsan. The weather conditions were good with a light breeze in the morning but slowly it got cloudy and the wind got up and after lunch the wind became very strong with light showers. Seven members fished in the competition and 3 members weighed in with Hamish McInnes in 1st place having 4 fish for 3 lb 1 oz. Second was Mike Osinski with 3 fish for 3 lb 12 oz with the heaviest fish at 1 lb 2 oz. Third was Davy Landsburgh with 2 fish for 1 lb 12 oz. All 7 members who fished had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
A very disappointing attendance for the 4th day of this competition on 22nd June, where only two members took part and both returned to the boathouse at 6pm.
Lee Lindop had 7 fish for 5lbs and Ronnie Ganley with 2 fish for 1lb 10oz … well done guys.
