Well done to all who fished the most recent Tarsan Competition! It was a decent day that started with near perfect conditions- dull with a westerly wind. As the day wore on the wind dropped and became more variable accompanied with periods of bright sunshine. Several intrepid ( and fit!) anglers fished the top of the dog leg with this area providing the best sport on the day. All in all an enjoyable day for anglers with a reasonable turn out. Well done to the two top bags returned by Lee and Graeme. They covered a lot of ground and got the rewards for their endeavours. Hope to see you all at the next Heat on 25 th of June and don’t forget the evening Moth Competition on the 17 th of June. Duncan MacGillivray (Convener, Loch Tarsan)
Graeme Henry sent this in, he said ….. “4 of my 8 fish that I caught during the 1st Tarsan Comp. I caught them on the one cast. Couldn’t believe it. 1st time in nearly 40 years fishing and I doubt I’ll do it again”
Ron Ganley – 1 fish for 1lb 0.5 ozs Keith Mackenzie – 1 fish for 1lb 3.1 ozs David Munroe – 1 fish for 1lb 11.6 ozs Lee Lindop – 5 fish for 5lbs 5 ozs Colin Brown – 6 fish for 6lbs 9.1ozs Graeme Henry – 8 fish for 7lbs 4.2 ozs (Graeme also weighed in the heaviest fish at 1 lb 14.7 ozs)
It was a hard days fishing, as the weather was as predicted, bright sun and a cold wind from N.W
Graeme Henry found these photos on his phone taken up Dunoon Reservoir in August 2020. The two hefty rainbows are 6lb 4oz and 6lb 8oz. A nice warm day by the looks of it, accompanied by his dad Tom. These days will soon return, we hope ! … Thanks for sharing Graeme 👍
We are looking at the ususal Menteith (June ?) followed by Harelaw fishery, Neilston (September ?) Harelaw is a top of the water fishery, mostly, the deepest part is the dam at aprox.12ft. No dates have been fixed yet ! We are looking for an early response from members for these outings so we can get an idea of boat bookings numbers. This is not a deposit booking but a heads up on members that might want to go. Please contact Bill Rankin before the New Year, either by email or leave a message in the comments section on this post.
