Bill Rankin caught his first salmon from the River Ruel today, a nice cock fish around the 6+lbs mark, all he would divulge was it was taken on a size 12 fly, a quick photo and then safely returned to the water to continue its journey. Well done Bill and thanks for sharing.
Nice photo of a Damsel Fly taken on the bank at the River Ruel by Bill Rankin, not a common sight !
“Another excellent way to learn more about your waters is to participate in river cleanups or work parties that aim to improve facilities. Besides making new friends you will be helping the club and benefiting from other members experiences. Ultimately though, to get the best from the Club waters, you will have to spend a lot of time not just fishing but walking and looking to find fish.”
The result for the “Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy” is shared this year between Bill Rankin and Paul McLean, well done guys ! The trophy was donated by Joe Docherty in memory of his father Jimmy, a member of this club in the early years.
A work party is organized, on the 16th Aug up the River Ruel, for fixing styles and fences, help required if anyone has a spare couple of hours that day.
