We will also check all tackle the first time you fish it to ensure it is the correct tackle and not spinning,or beach caster type rods,bubble floats and pike gear is a no no as there is no pike!.Hook size is important and no hooks above size 12 allowed and must be barbless.
The key is to fish light,size 18,s,20 hooks best.Pole fishing is very good.

Children aged 12 and under are not allowed on the Coarse loch.

It has taken 18 years to get this loch to what it is and all the fish are healthy,so it is paramount that care is taken when releasing them

Well its been a decent week with a lot of fish being caught.George Flett had 10 fish best at &lbs,Tom Anderson had 9,Barry ward 9,Mark Bell had 10 and 20,Eddie Kane had 17 ,some big fish caught and returned.Best flies have been Buzzers,kate maclarens,spiders and last few days coch y bundi beetles have emerged and fish will soon latch onto those so they would be a good move but down small to 16,s.Dont overlook suspender buzzers either as fish high and on the top of the water.

On top of this plenty of raffle prizes including a peg raffle draw and all prizes went to a good number of anglers and also those who had bought raffles elsewhere.

After a blustery mid week,fishing has improved and we had some really good fish being caught by anglers.Jimmy Rhind had an 8lb and 6lb Blues,Neil Smith had a PB brown of just over 5lbs,Eddie Kane had 17 including a lovely Brownie aswell,Donny Geddes had 23 fish which included a good double of around the 14lbs mark,Barry Ward also had a good fish of 11lbs plus,Slater Scott had 19 just to name a few.Best flies have been white and lime,lime and black with varied lines from floating to intermediate lines and changing retrieves of slow to fast depending on the day you fish.There are some big fish around so dont be tempted to fish too light.

September 11, 2018
Some beautifull fish being caught with a lot of doubles among them.Best has been around the 18lb plus with a few 14 to 16 lbs,all which have been returned due to anglers on CandR.But they are there to be caught again.Some big big blues in the lochs aswell so dont fish too light if you happen to hook into one of those as they will take you a merry dance.Best flies seem to be varied and depending on weather at the day of fishing.One minute its dries,then buzzers and then lures.Colours seem to be lime and black and the old favourites still work like ace of spades,budgies,kate mclarens and cdc,s on the day.Road is done and I ask all anglers to respect the speed limit to keep it maintained.Its your cars afterall and it will help it keeping the speed down and taking it easy on it.Now we are in September its fry time which is always a great fishing period and daddy long legs around.Tight lines.

The welcome change in weather conditions which has cooled things down a lot and given a little fresh water and got fish a little more interested in taking a fly.The fish now responding and catches getting back to a little what they were before all the red hot temperatures. On the coarse loch,catches have been excellent with plenty of fish being taken,especially on maggot,mixed colours of bronze and red,sweetcorn and 2mm pellet doing best.Pole and feeder have been the best tactics especially around the reeds.

June 17, 2018
Its been a better week for fishing with the weather cooling and helping fish to become a bit more active and rising in the water where they have been taking cover in cooler water temperatures with the heat.Conditions look like becoming much better as far as fishing is concerned.Some good fish still being caught but when released need to be coaxed till they recover as the water is warmer.Best flies have been Kate McLarens,yellow dancers,buzzers and ace of spades.

Weather hasn't been good this week,but as I write its a good morning for fishing with fish rising all over the loch.Archie Miller has just had a good fish on his first cast and it is perfect conditions.Plenty of bigger fish moving around now so don't fish too light.

April 23, 2018
A really good week with good weather and fish all over the top.Dries and buzzers worked best for most anglers.Some good fish have been taking with plenty of bigger fish . 9lb 6ozs a beauty.Great to see that the season is now underway. On the coarse loch fishing is going well and Paul Murdoch had a great bag of fish and capped the week off really well with all anglers doing well.Red Maggot has been the best choice and fish coming to it well.It has to be emphazised this loch does not fish well when you overfeed so keep it to a minimum if you really want fish.Micro pellet that's 2mm has also done well for some.Remember these are wild fish not stockies.

April 2, 2018
All lochs clear this morning,Monday no ice to report at all.Some snowfall overnight but this should clear.just make sure your dressed for fishing its not tee shirt and shorts yet.Plenty of fish being caught on buzzers,black and green fritz and yellow dancers,varying on intermediate and floating lines.
