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.

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
