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

MENTEITH OUTING SAT 17 TH MAY 2017
14 members had a very productive day at Menteith. All but two caught fish with nothing under 2 lbs
The best catch for the first three fish was Lee Lindop at 10lbs 7ozs and second was Harry Lindop at 9lbs 9oz
Lee, the definitive fish charmer, caught 17 fish in total on the day, catch and return, How does he do it ??
All the fish caught were of excellent quality
As in the past the odd Pike was hooked and duly returned for the winter pike fishing season. Possibly we should arrange a winter Outing for Pike. Anybody interested please contact David Lilley.
The Oaktree Inn provided an attractive choice of dishes on the Menu and we could patronise them again if members were happy to repeat it
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.

Last Sunday we had a successful day removing the old rails from under the mooring lines at Loch Eck boathouse, we had problems on several occasions where the rails damaged and severed lines, problem solved… they are oot ! Also gravel was put into the big dip before the boatshed which always fills knee deep with water after heavy periods of rain. Thanks to all who came down to lend a hand, and also to Stephen Landsburgh who operated the machine for us.
