Lake of Menteith Report 5th Oct 09

The Water temperature and clarity at Gateside is 13C and 1.8m. Fishing was cancelled on Saturday 3rd due to the forecast/gale. Areas fishing in the previous week have been predominantly on the eastern shore; from Reedy Point, into Hotel Bay and round the Road Shore to Lochend. Blobs are still a favourite combined with buzzers or diawl bach types.

CHANGE ‘A’ Scottish Club Champs 2009
A memorable performance by 45 year old Kevin McCabe had the rest of the field conceding a deserved victory to Change A Fly Fishers. Kevin (below centre) – also last year’s top rod, and a housing developer from East Lothian, netted 19 fish. Jock Kettles (on left) landed 9, as did team mate Andy Dunn (on right) from Kilmarnock - to secure a first Club Champions win for these three anglers.  Kevin’s tactics were sink tip, three buzzers and a blob on the point. Team mates Andy and Jock were using similar tactics. In second place were last year’s winners Jim McBride (who was the second best individual with 18 fish), Willie Leach and Jim Crawford. In third place were Crieff B (David Downie, Michael Low and Nigel Burns).

Competition Secretary Kenny Miller thanked the 700 anglers who competed in the event and their generosity in so far donating £2400 (much of it the prize money, including around £800 from Change AC) to the Yorkhill Hospital Special Equipment fund. A special mention was also given to the Daily Record for their weekly coverage, hosting and for promoting this competition. Not forgetting the sponsors of the heat prizes (Grouse Whisky), the Finalist’s prizes (Angling Centre Stirling), the competiton committee and the Lake Staff. 

The 18 three man teams (54 anglers) caught 339 fish for 712lbs (187 returned), a rod average of 6.3 fish per angler.
