Lake of Menteith 11th September

Secchi Disk Clarity 2.5m;  6ft Water temperature 15C

Catches have been all over in the last few days, with top tactics booby and nymph on sink tip to slow glass, or dries (daddies). The eastern basin is perhaps out fishing the west at present. The average weight of the fish is currently 2lbs 13oz with some big fish in the catches. Peter Batchelor (Glasgow) and Gary Hamilton (on right) from Lanark had a weigh in of 8 fish for 31lbs 10oz, which included 3 fish for 18lbs 6oz – all on dries.

Bobby Dabblers galore at the Lake last week for the Police International. In all the 64 rods landed 141 fish which weighed 367lbs (an average weight of 2lbs 10oz). The Scots (pictured below) won fairly convincingly with their 16 rods weighing in 44 fish and returning 23. In second place were N.Ireland with 36 fish weighed in and 16 rtd. England were in third place with 44 in total and Wales got the “wooden spoon” for their total catch of 35 fish. The top bag was Jim McBride of Edinburgh with 9 fish (7 on daddies and, 1 on shield bug and 1 on ballon caddis). The top 4 or 5 rods were all fishing dries.
