Frandy, 04 September 2021

Mel Mitchell reports… Due to a late call off, the day started by requiring some chemical 1,2-shifts in terms of boat partners resulting in a new pairing of Dougie Skedd and myself heading out in boat 11.  We set out on an easterly course, heading straight for the dam wall.  There was little wind and…

Carron Valley Reservoir, 22 May 2017

Derek Kilgour reporting… The weather when we set off was looking promising: overcast, temperatures around the low teens, and a light breeze from the north-east to east direction.

Lake of Menteith, 28 August 2016

Keith Logan reports: It was a day probably best spent on the shore by Jimmy Nairn’s with a BBQ or maybe take the pleasure boat out to Inchmaholme.  The sun was splitting the sky and there was very little breeze; drifting was but a dream.  There were occasional fish rising, but they tended to come…
