Well here we are in the middle of summer (I think), time to update you with what’s been happening or about to happen.

First I would like to congratulate one of our members , John Fyffe on catching the first grilse a nice 4lb on the Marr beat, well done John, now let’s all get out there and tell me you’ve caught the first salmon.

Don Keenan has replaced Alan Mydelton on the club committee, Don was a committee member many years ago , and I’d like to welcome him back as I know he has a lot to contribute to the club.

As most of you know we’ve had a work party giving Loch Muick boathouse a bit of a revamp, Don Keenan, Lewis Ward and myself have just had the boat out on a glorious day ( one of the few- last Thursday) when we had probably one of the most prolific days we’ve ever had approx. 40 brown trout, photos on the web site.

The only bad thing was the new combination lock was damaged? we’ve had to fit a temporary lock, I now have a replacement and will be fitting it ASAP, well that’s going to be my excuse to Doreen for going back up to Muick so soon. (he smiles).

Gordon Compton is in contact with the Royal Guard to see if we can get their assistance to rebuild the damaged jetty at Loch Muick, we await developments and I will probably be chasing you on this one as well.

Towie – The fishing has slowed down here mostly due to the growth of the grass etc making it very difficult to get to the pools, discussions are underway to come up with a plan to make a path that will be manageable over time, I will keep you informed and no doubt be looking for help, the broken step at the hut has been fixed.

The car boot sale will be here before we now it, 15th August, plans are underway, Paul Ratcliffe is organising the stalls, Paul can be contacted on 07821169759 or e mail we are always looking for helpers for this event ,many thanks to those who have already been in touch, please if you think you can help in any way contact Paul.

We are looking for quality items for our own stall, even if you don’t have anything for this you might like to consider donating something that we can raffle ( ie: a bottle – a box of chocs – money etc just for example we accept anything except abuse, which I get anyway), can you contact Tober (Robert Thomson) he is looking after these items, and can be contacted on 01339756124 or mobile 07855632773.

We are looking at holding a fishing competition with the Dinnet club on 13th September, details to follow.

Tight lines Willie.
