Hi All. Hope you are enjoying the last of Autumn….

BOOKING REPORT:)We intend to move over to a new booking platform for 2021 as discussed in previous posts – We plan to get it up an running for winter boat booking in December but it needs to be available online from the end of December as detailed below.

CLUB BOOKINGS: Please send your club bookings (3 or more boats) to or by letter to Lake of Menteith Fisheries, Port of Menteith Stirling FK8 3RA  – we will confirm or offer alternatives as soon as possible – out target is to confirm by the end of November. We plan to charge a 20% deposit on club bookings in advance with the balance paid online before arrival (or by cheque or other arrangement with the fishery). Any problems please contact the fishery. Refunds freely available unless we had to turn folks away because we were fully booked.

INDIVIDUAL MULTI DAY BOOKINGS; For bookings of 10 or more individual boats on different days in 2021 we plan to allow prior access to the booking portal from 21st December. A deposit of 20% will be payable. Please contact the fishery nearer the time for an early access booking password or with any problems.


FISHING REPORT; DRY FLY IN NOVEMBER. Black Bits and hoppers were working well for Colin Riach this week.  He had 9 fish, 7 on dries using these two patterns. Fraser Young was out yesterday the 10th Nov and his boat had most of their 10 fish (av.wt.3lb+) on dries – 9 of the fish came from the Butts although they only fished there for an hour at the start and an hour at the end.  The best two man boat yesterday netted 16 fish.

NICE PB: Gareth Neilson was out with guide Stuart Sutherland of FishX and broke his pike fly PB twice in an hour with these two perfect specimens.
