A873 closed next week around and in Thornhill best to approach via Arnprior on A811 for the 11th to 15th July

Clarity remains good and hot spots are still in the western drifts with The Gap, Heronry, Malling Shore, Stable Point and Gateside Bay all being favoured by the anglers. In the wind or at any time a slow glass or sink tip and lures has been popular but a couple of big dries has worked equally well if that is more your style!

Bill Ramage of Tillicoultry caught this 9lb 9oz bow in the cages on a size 10 black snatcher. He has also been doing well with the Ramage Cat (he won the Boat League last week with 15). Paul Garner was the best bag at the Scottish Clubs on Saturday night with 12 fish from Gateside with a blob and nymphs on a sink tip. In the last of the two National Semis last week at the Lake on 1/7/16 Alan MacLachlan from Bridge of Allan was top rod with 16 trout from Gateside on a booby and a slow glass (28 anglers caught 205 trout). In the Heat on 28th June Davie Moore (Dumfermline Artisans) was top rod with 20 trout all taken from the Heronry area on two yellow owls (48 anglers caught 306 fish).
