Lake of Menteith 25th October 2011

13 year old Callum Steven from Livingston has been successful again in our young persons club the Cormorants. Callum won the Summer Season Chase by 3 fish over Max McInstrie and also won the final day comp trophy, the Tam Denholm Shield with 2 fish for 8lbs 12oz (one at 5lbs 8oz).  Many thanks to the Cormorant's youth coach Alasdair Mair and his assistants for their work in developing these youngster’s skills. Fly tying evenings for the Cormorants commence on Tuesday 1st November.

 

The Lake is fishing well during our last full week of the season with some cracking fish being landed or returned and some good bags. Best areas have been Heronry, Sandy Bay, Reedy Point and Lochend/Tod Hole. Tactics have varied but crunchers, diawl bachs, cormorants, boobys and dancers on sink tip, slow glass and no 3 sink lines have all been deployed to good effect.

 

 

We still have some boats for the Kirk and School day on the 6th of November. The boat (12 till 4ish) for two costs £40 including the BBQ and refreshments.
At the weekend Clydesdale Bank caught 19 fish for 58lbs with 6 boats and Thack caught 44 also with 6 boats.
Official season closes on Monday 31st Oct. Below:

Douglas Fraser “doing some quality control”, and Angus Barbour, David Sibbald and Pat Thomson with some other more troot.
