Help is very much required at work parties and also at boats in/out of the water especially up the Reservior and Loch Tarsan. Every year it’s the same people that faithfully come along to help with the work (average age 70+) The dates for these are listed in the year diary so please try to come along …. it’s your club, look after it !
The last two trophies were awarded to their recipients at the Annual Dinner which was held at the Argyll Hotel last Saturday evening.
The Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy was awarded to Bill Rankin and Allan Miller, for the most club waters fished with fish being caught.
And the Peter Manson Award went to John Pickett for the most fish being caught at Dunoon Reservior
Just goes to show there are still plenty fish in Loch Tarsan even after the competitions have finished, Bill Rankin had excellent day last weekend and caught 13 fish all well above the 9″ two of which are shown here, 1lb and a 1-3/4lb fish, and all were returned to the water unharmed. Allan Miller also had 5 good fish to his name and returned safely. So plenty fish up there and still another full month of the brown trout season to go … get up there !
The final Tarsan competition was held on Saturday 5th August 2017. Only five competitors came to the weigh in. The top rod was Bill Rankin, with six fish at 2lbs 15ozs. All five competitors weighed in fish.
After five days of intense fishing the Tarsan Competition for 2017 has drawn to a close.
Nine members fished the competition
Total fish caught was 102 @ 68lbs 7oz and the heaviest fish was 1lb 5oz and the average weight was 10.7oz
1st place was Lee Lindop with 31 @ 20lbs 13oz
2nd place was Keith Mackenzie with 21 @ 13lbs 1oz

So the winner of the P.J. Mackenzie Cup for 2017 is Lee Lindop, he also wins the Tarsan Cup for the heaviest fish at 1lb 5oz …. well done Lee !
So next season Lee Lindop, Bill Rankin and Keith Mackenzie go through to represent the club in the Scottish Nationals Competition, we wish them well !
