 HALLOWEEN ZOMBIE TROUT NETTED. This strange looking specimen “aka the Zombie Trout” was stocked on 23/10/14 and a reward of a £50 permit voucher was issued. Stevie Francis from Barrhead, netted it and claimed his reward on 26th October – 3 days later. The fish was stocked in Sandy Bay and Caught in Kates Brae. We are keeping the reward offer open to for a second captor, but only if Zombie Troot is photographed (as above) with the captor, and returned safely
 
 
 
 
 
 
NETS OFF AND EXCLUSION ZONE LIFTED FROM GATESIDE BAY.
On Monday 24th at noon the last of the seasons stocking was made (300 fish av.wt 2.7lbs), the fish pens were pushed ashore and the exclusion rope removed. A big fish extravaganza followed. Malcolm Miller from Alloa (left)landed this 8lb beauty and followed up the weigh in with a spontaneous life jacket self inflation – to mark the dampness of the occasion. Some of the pictured specimens are (below left Kenny cruikshank), below middle Alistair Mair and below right Peter Lee. There are bigger pets to be caught!
