Ronnie Ganley and Lee Lindop were out on Loch Eck on Friday, conditions were bright and very calm, Ronnie caught this nice grilse while trawling lures, it was safely returned to the water to continue its journey, sea trout were also caught on the day.
The annual match with Dunrod Angling Club was today 27th July, Dunrod won the day by 6 fish to 5, a great time was had by all who fished and the rain didn’t dampen their spirits. The Thompson Trophy was donated by a member of the Dunrod Club who was also a member of DDAC (for 67 years) sadly passed away recently, so it was fitting that it went back to them this year.
Cheers from Dunrod
Hard work fishing

It was a beautiful day, conditions good but very bright most of the time. 10 members fished, total catch was 19 for 24lb. Best basket was Lee Lindop – 3 for 6lb and largest fish was Mike Ozinski – 2lb 7oz
There was a good turn out today to help with the monthly stocking at Dunoon Reservoir, another load of quality fish put in the water with plenty over the 4 lbs mark. Thanks to all the lads who turned up to help.
Please remember you need a permit to fish here at all times, all our waters are patrolled regularly, poaching will not be tolerated, and persons doing so will be reported to police.
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.
Sightings of Osprey have been observed on both Dunoon Reservoir and at Loch Loskin recently so keep your eyes open for this … just hope he/she has purchased a permit at the paint shop and filled in the returns 🙂
