On Thursday 6 June, President Davy Landsburgh and Club Members celebrated the launching of our new Coulam Defender 15 rowing boat – our newest asset. The launching was delayed due to lack of water but now all 4 boats are ready for fishing. The photos show the launching ceremony and the new boat attached to the mooring ropes.
The new boat is now at it’s moorings, therefore help is no longer needed tomorrow evening at Tarsan, a big thanks to all who offered to help.
The third round of the Mackenzie Trophy was held today at Loch Tarsan and it was very poorly attended with only three members fishing and all three weighed in at the boathouse at 6pm.
Top rod on the day was Lee Lindop with 10 fish for 8lbs 5.5oz second was Allan Miller with 4 fish for 3lbs 5.3oz is and in third place was David Halliday with 1 fish for 15ozs, well done to all who took part in a very wet and cold day, but we really need more members to take part.
The next Tarsan Competition (Day 3) is on Saturday 25th, the last two days have been poorly attended, so lets see if we can get a few more competitors for Day 3.
The second day of the Mackenzie competition was held yesterday at Loch Tarsan ,with yet again only three members competing, all three attended the weigh in at 6pm. Top rod was Lee Lindop with 10 fish for 8lbs 11ozs and his heaviest fish of 1lb 6.5oz, in second place on the day was Ron Ganley with 8 fish for a weight of 5lbs 5oz and a heaviest fish of 1 lb 5oz and Allan Miller came in third place with 2 fish for 2 lbs 1oz with his heaviest at 1lb 3oz .
The day was a mixture of bright sun some cloud cover at times but biting icy cold breeze most of the day.
Water level is still depressingly low on the loch as the video shows. So please take care when bank fishing as the mud is still soft and dangerous.
There was a very poor turnout for the first competition of the 2019 season with only four anglers competing and only two anglers weighing in at 6 pm.
Lee Lindop was the top rod with four fish for 2lbs 2oz and the heaviest fish of 10 1/2 ozs. Second was Allan Miller with one fish for 8oz. Conditions were mixed starting off with a flat calm followed by a light breeze and showers. Plenty of fish showing to start off then they seemed to go down.
The 1st Tarsan competition is on this Saturday as scheduled, but members must take care when walking the banks and especially when wading, as the silt is soft and holds hidden pockets that you can sink up to the knees. Start at 12 noon at the boat house.
