The final day of competition for the Mackenzie Shield and the Club Championship took place on
Saturday 13th August. Falling in a mini heatwave this afternoon Competition was looking like
being a tough challenge. One concession on the conditions was a decent breeze from the east.
There was also a little cloud cover early on before the strong sun broke through. Four anglers
started the competition with three weighing in fish. The result was as follows;
- Lee Lindop. 6 fish 4lb 5.3oz
- Graeme Hendry. 1 fish. 0lb 9.9oz
- Duncan MacGillivray. 1 fish. 0lb 9.4oz
This final result saw Lee Lindop take the Club Championship. He had begun the day with a slender lead over runner up Graeme Hendry and extended this lead on the day with a very decent bag given the difficult conditions. Lee’s consistency across the Competitions is to be applauded and he ran out a worthy winner. Congratulations Lee!
Graeme Hendry also deserves praise for some great bags of fish and staying in contention throughout. Graeme also had the consolation of catching the biggest fish across the Competitions, with a fish of 1lb14.7 oz. Well done Graeme!
As well as displaying considerable skill with a fly rod both of these anglers adopt an approach that requires a huge physical effort to cover water and seek out fish in rough terrain and a variety of weather conditions.

Convener, Loch Tarsan.
Weather started with a goodly blow from the west, reducing eventually into a very warm afternoon. The water was very cloudy especially on the east banks, which made the fishing a bit more challenging.
There were 10 members came to the outing, with five only catching.
D. Halliday 1 fish for 2lbs
D. Landsburgh 1 fish for 4lbs 4ozs (Largest fish)
R. Ganley 2 fish for 5lbs 8ozs
L. Lindop 2 fish for 6lbs (Largest bag)
D. Penman 1 fish for 3lbs 4ozs
The next outing is on the 10th September.
Work is underway on improving access at Otter Ferry Road Bridge. If using the lay-by please park at the extreme end away from the river to allow vehicles to pass each other. A stile will be erected when the new fence is in place.
Finally we had more seasonal conditions for a Tarsan Competition with higher temperatures, a light westerly and even some sunny spells! Around a half dozen Club members turned out and with some guests from Dunrod A.C. using our boats it was good to see the Loch a little busier with anglers.
Results were as follows;
- Lee Lindop. 10 fish 13lbs 14.4 oz
- Graeme Henry. 10 fish. 10lbs 7.2 oz
- Duncan MacGillivray 5 fish. 5lbs 0.7 oz
- Colin Brown. 3 fish. 2lbs 9oz
- Keith Mackenzie. 2 fish. 1lbs 15.3 oz
Well done to the top two competitors whose efforts now see the Club championship go right to the wire with very little between them going into the last Competition on August 13th.
All competitors are asked to be back at the boat house to weigh in by 6.15 pm please.
New bridge and stile over ditch and fence near top of our water, above Clachan of Glendaruel Road Bridge. Please note creosote is still tacky.
Tonight was the last committee meeting for Peter Menzies, long standing club member and committe stalwart for Health & Safety. Peter is off to start a new life South of the border, but he says he will continue to keep his membership running for any future visits to the town. He was presented with a signed card and a gift from President Davy Landsburgh. We wish Peter all the best for the future.
This article highlights the precarious state of our wild salmon and sea trout stocks in Scotland. It is essential that responsible anglers continue to carefully return fish and help look after our club rivers and waters.
A new 10″ minimum fish size is now in effect for all our waters and competitions.
Remember only two visits per week on the Loskin. (See club manual)
