Sat 13th May Lake of Menteith
14 members had a very productive day at Menteith. All but two caught fish with nothing under 2 lbs
The best catch for the first three fish was Lee Lindop at 10lbs 7ozs and second was Harry Lindop at 9lbs 9oz
Lee, the definitive fish charmer, caught 17 fish in total on the day, catch and return, How does he do it ??
All the fish caught were of excellent quality
As in the past the odd Pike was hooked and duly returned for the winter pike fishing season. Possibly we should arrange a winter Outing for Pike. Anybody interested please contact David Lilley.
The Oaktree Inn provided an attractive choice of dishes on the Menu and we could patronise them again if members were happy to repeat it

Second was Harry Lindop, with 3 fish at 1lb 9ozs.
