The Cameron Cup has again been won by Keith MacKenzie with four fish, not as good as last year however when he had six.
John Pickett Snr and Ronnie Ganley ran him a close second with three fish each.
If it had come down to deciding it on weight Keith would still have won with 9lbs 9ozs, next would have been John with 6lbs 14ozs followed by Ronnie with 6lbs 12ozs. So quite tight !
The outing to Loch Frandy took place on Saturday 18th July, 13 members attended, conditions were very hard on the day with strong winds and squally showers but that didn’t dampen our spirits for a very enjoyable day !
The results were….. Heaviest catch was Ronnie Ganley with 3 fish for 6lb 12oz, John Pickett Sr caught the heaviest fish at 3lb, and the total catch for 13 members was 14 fish for 32lb 3oz.
After fishing all members went to The Inn at Yetts of Muckart for a very enjoyable meal, followed by the results and presentations for heaviest bag and heaviest fish.
It was their third annual visit to Tarsan.They had 7 members fishing, 28 fish caught, best fish 1.5 lbs.
In their thank-you letter, they said it had poured down with a blustery wind all day,
“but we all enjoyed it with some nice catches” – and went calm for the last hour,
when “We couldn’t see our cars for midges!”
Nice to hear of happy visiting anglers !
The Club came in second place on Saturday 30th May in the Scottish Clubs Heat 5 Competition at The Lake of Menteith.
We will be fishing the semi-finals which is a day event on the 21st August 2015.
The team was Bill Rankin, Lee Lindop and Keith McKenzie.
Conditions weren’t very kind to us on Saturday at the Lake, strong cold winds, very heavy showers, and very few fish. Twenty members turned up on the day, with only two weighing in, with a miserable four fish between them ! A couple of anglers caught smallish pike. Keith McKenzie won with 3 fish for 7lb 7oz (biggest fish 2lb 14oz) and John Pickett Sr 1 fish for 2lb 4oz. Well done guys ! A big thanks to David Lilley for organising the outing and arranging the dinner at the Beech Tree Inn at Dumgoyne.
