A great end to the trout season at the Lake with some fine company, songs and some fishing.
 

The Lake of Menteith Fishery Company again donated all the receipts from the fishing boat permits to the local Primary School and Kirk. The Pupils, Parent Council, Parents, Locals, Local businesses and anglers pitched in to provide soup, raffle, refreshments, entertainment and a BBQ. The Children sung their Lake of Menteith Song and “If it wasnae fir yir Wellies” and had their fishing fly designs judged - whilst not orbiting the fishery cabin. At the last count the total receipts for the day were £2760. Which means some people bought an awful lot of raffle tickets and had quite a few attempts at guessing the weight of the dumpling. You are a generous bunch! Ian Scott even managed a fine looking troot of 5 ½ lbs (see picture below right).
The day before had started ominously as this red sky in the morning dawn picture testifies. The old saying was extremely accurate and the pike anglers concentrated on surviving the cold and windy deluge rather than fishing…….Seasonal Stats for the Lake next week hopefully.
