Lake of Menteith 1st April 2014
6ft Water Temperature 5C , Clarity (Secchi disc) 2m.

Amazing rises again at the Lake. Some good buzzer hatches apparent when the wind drops. Fishing has been mainly concentrated in the eastern basin drifting west - out of the shelter from the east wind. Some really prolific catches were noted in the reports. Top tactics were buzzers, booby and diawl bachs on a sink tip and dries. Today, Alisdair Forbes and Brad Chalmers returned 19 all on dries, and it was “best rise I’ve seen at the Lake”, according to Brad. The pair were fishing Hare’s Ear and Shipmans!  Alan Murray from Strathblane took 4 fish today and returned 24. G.Connolly’s boat rtd 35 on boobies and Ewan clark rtd 40. Notable and club catches: BBAC 10 boats 71 trout 161lbs plus 8 rtd,  Bothwell and Blantyre9 boats 60 fish 143lbs plus 43 rtd, Grizzlecats 8 boats 10 fish 36lbs plus 158 rtd.
We were sorry to hear of the passing away of Johnny Meikle, a well known and popular angler from Glasgow.  . Johnny brought a memorable smile and sense of humour to the Lake and fished with Gartmore AC; was usually a boatman for disabled events, and helped out with the Scottish Club Championships.
