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

The waters still on the low side but at least the boats are all floating.
Unusually low water conditions just now at Loch Tarsan, members are warned if fishing from the shoreline the mud is very soft and could prove dangerous, it is advised while these conditions prevail, not to fish alone.
