Annual Get together The annual start of the season meeting at Loch Goin on Sunday 19th March was well attended with 13 cars cramming the car park. The very bad weather we were expecting did not materialise. It was windy but not too cold. Even with a stocking of 250 fish the day before, I didn't see or hear of any fish caught. One fish was raised. For those that like statistics there were 26 rolls and sausage consumed washed down with 2 gallons of teas and coffees. So all was not lost. It was great to see so many new enthusiastic members as well as many existing ones. We did manage to put out one boat out on the Goin but due to the heavy rain forecast for the next week it was decided to delay putting the rest of the boats out. This will be done over the next few weeks. It will also allow for some much needed boat maintenance.
Please make sure you have your permit with you before you go to the water and display your parking permit in a prominent place on the windscreen or dashboard.
It's not just about fishing The gentle song of the skylark so high in the sky you can't see them. The sounds of the Curlew, the oyster catches, the grouse and the geese, these are truly magical places. And fishing huts, open to members only, to stop have a natter about your fishy exploits, make friends and enjoy the fishing together.
