3rd Tarsan Competition 26/05/2018
The loch was very low making wading quite difficult, it was a very sunny and hot day with a gusting wind which made casting difficult. Six members attended the weigh in at the boat house and the top rod was, Harry Lindop with 9 fish at 6lbs 5ozs. In second place was Allan Miller with 6 fish at 4lbs 6ozs.
The next Tarsan Competition is the Tarsan Moth Competition, 7pm – 11pm on Friday, 15th June 2018.
The second day of the Tarsan Competition took place on May 5th. Lee Lindop was first with 7 fish for 3lb 1oz. Harry Lindop and Ron Ganley came second equal with 3 fish each for a total of 3lb 1oz.
On Saturday 12 May, Dunoon and District Angling Club had their first outing of the season to the Lake of Menteith. The weather was a bit bright for the fishing but 11 members had an enjoyable day. Davy Landsburgh, President of DDAC presented Andy Mallaney with a bottle of whisky for the Best Basket with 3 rainbow trout weighing a total of 8 lbs and also a half bottle of whisky to Ron Ganley who had the heaviest rainbow trout weighing 3 lb 10 oz.
DDAC member Steve Sorrell landed this hefty Rainbow Trout up at Dunoon Reservoir today, it weighed in at 9lb 12oz , just goes to show the quality of fish that are getting stocked just now …. well done Steve !
Tomorrow 5th May is the second day of the competition, starting at 12 noon, the weigh in is at the boathouse at 6pm . The forecasts quite good so why not come along !
It has been brought to my attention that the swans have moved their nest from the dam outlet to the WEST ISLAND. The female swan has built a new nest and is sitting on eggs, barriers have been erected so as not to disturb the nest.
Fellow anglers please do not cross the barriers to fish, as this area is temporarily out of bounds from 1st May until the end of June until the eggs have hatched.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
Davy Landsburgh Club President.
Two boats have now had successful repairs carried out and are now back in the water, so now all four boats are at their moorings and ready for use … tight lines !
