A photo of the water level at Loch Tarsan today, it shows the dangerous situation with the soft mud at waters edge, nobody knows when the levels will return to normal.
Lee Lindop – 10 fish 6lbs 1.1ozs
Allan Miller – 7 fish 7lbs 14.9ozs
Greame Henry – 6 fish 4lbs 10.9ozs
Ron Ganley – 1 fish 1lb 1.4ozs
Again all enjoyed their day out.Weather stayed settled but warm with little wind, this made walking Tarsan a little hot under the collar
The boats are finally in the water up at Loch Tarsan, but the water is still very low, Bill Rankin and Allan Miller fished it today and had good sport. Bills fish in photo was solid and fat, and was approx 2.5 lbs, all fish caught were returned safely.
Dear members and visitors
We are having complaints from the public about discarded fishing line – see photo. I would hope that no member of the Club would leave any line lying around. Line like this is detrimental to the safety of wildlife. If you see any line lying around, please pick up, take home and discard in a safe way. Davy
Ronnie Ganley 10 fish for 12lbs 10.1ozs
Allan Miller 3 fish for 3lbs 15.2ozs
Lee Lindop 3 fish 2lbs 9ozs
Simon Mullins 1 fish for 1lb 10.6ozs
Graeme Henry 1 fish for 0lbs 8.7ozs
The weather was foul at the start of the competition with rain and high winds, but the dog leg seemed to be the better side to fish as it was more sheltered.We had one competitor fall in – Tarsan at its best.
1 Graeme Henry – 10 fish for 14 lbs 15.4 ozs. also the heaviest fish at 2lbs 2.5 ozs
2 Ron Ganley – 10 fish for 14 lbs 3.1 ozs
3 Lee Lindop – 8 fish for 11 lbs 9.8 ozs
4 Harry Lindop – 4 fish for 6 lbs 4.5 ozs
5 David Halliday – 3 fish for 4 lbs 4.7 ozs
The weather did its usual, lovely sunshine with a biting North wind at times and snow/hailstones just to round it off. Everybody seemed to enjoy the day and the quality of the fish was a bonus.
Member David Halliday caught a nice 2lb 4oz brownie up at Loch Tarsan yesterday, He said “Up early and finished at 10:30 having 6 to the net. Water levels were low, wind howling and couldn’t believe it when it started to rain”
A DDAC member captured this image yesterday up at Loch Tarsan, it shows two children a good bit out on the thin ice and a male adult on the bank, what you won’t see in this photo is that the adult was throwing large lumps of ice high in the air, and crashing down on the ice surface where his children were.
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.
