Sunday 18th was a very cold, snowy, windy day and we attached two boats to the moorings at Loch Tarsan ( one short shaft ) one standard.
The other two boats will go in when repairs to them are completed.
The loch is now ok to fish from the bank as water levels are nearly back to normal.
We are waiting on a delivery date of the brown trout stocking which we hope will happen very soon.
The boats in Loch Loskin should be ready for use from this Sunday.
Water is still too low and mud too deep to get boats onto the moorings at Loch Tarsan as these photos show, taken this morning March 12th. We hope to get an improvement in the situation soon. Members are reminded not to fish alone, due to very deep mud especially in the boat-shed bay.
Davy Landsburgh took over as the new President of DDAC following the AGM at the Argyll Hotel last Tuesday. We wish him all the best for the next three years.
Help is very much required at work parties and also at boats in/out of the water especially up the Reservior and Loch Tarsan. Every year it’s the same people that faithfully come along to help with the work (average age 70+) The dates for these are listed in the year diary so please try to come along …. it’s your club, look after it !
A good few of the longer standing members of this club will remember Chuck Swisher, he was in the DDAC in the late 80’s when the US Navy was in the town, a very accomplished fly tyer and knowledgeable angler .. he sends this message !
Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I still miss the good times spent fishing with members of the Dunoon And District Angling Club. Thank you for making my time spent in Dunoon 3 of the best years of my time in the navy. Wishing you all the best for the Holidays and tight lines in the New Year.
Received a nice Thank You card from a guest who attended the recent Annual Dinner at the Argyll Hotel, we thought it would be nice to post it up.
The 2017 Annual Dinner was held in the Argyll Hotel, Dunoon last Saturday (25th) a great evening was had by all, the guest speakers were Arthur French and Jim Thomson, with Jim McSkimming presenting the Macaulay Tankard to an unsuspecting Bill Duff. Good food and great raffle prizes, a thoroughly entertaining evening from start to finish.
