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 🙂
Dear Members – as you probably all know, 3 of the Tarsan boats were put into the Tarsan on 10 March 2019. A week later, the Hydro Board were using the water to supply power to the grid and the water level receded a lot – so bad that the boats were lying in the mud. The edges of Loch Tarsan were even dangerous to fish from the bank due to the mud. Last Saturday evening, we took delivery of our new Coulam boat . The new boat was transferred from the delivery trailer on to DDAC’s trailer and was transported from the road-side down to the boat shed and stored inside the boat-shed as there was no water to launch the boat.
Members, I am now pleased to say that the Tarsan water is up to where the boats are floating well and the Tarsan is now open for business. The new boat will hopefully be in the water by the week-end.
Simon Mullins caught something a little exotic today up at the reservoir, blue trout, caught on buzzer and safely returned for someone else to enjoy another day.
Just a gentle reminder to those members who have not paid their annual subscription fee , this is due by June 1st, and is the same price as last year which is £100.
The third round of the Mackenzie Trophy was held today at Loch Tarsan and it was very poorly attended with only three members fishing and all three weighed in at the boathouse at 6pm.
Top rod on the day was Lee Lindop with 10 fish for 8lbs 5.5oz second was Allan Miller with 4 fish for 3lbs 5.3oz is and in third place was David Halliday with 1 fish for 15ozs, well done to all who took part in a very wet and cold day, but we really need more members to take part.
