Parkview Fundraiser - 21st February 2016
The second fundraiser of the year was held at Parkview Fishery and once again Jim and Edna did a great job for us and produced an excellent days sport with catering to match. A total of 116 fish were caught and released and they included fish of 8lbs, 8lbs 10ozs, 9lbs 8ozs and 10lbs 12ozs. The lucky anglers who caught these beauties were awarded extra fish with the three under 10lbs counting as an additional 3 fish and the one at 10lbs 12ozs counting as an additional 4 fish. There was very little to split the top three anglers all of whom had received a bonus of three additional fish. Third spot went to Stewart Barclay with 11 fish. Second place went to Euan McDougall with 12 fish and the overall winner was Ronnie Gilbert also with 12 fish. With the top two being tied on 12 fish the result went to Ronnie Gilbert as he caught his first fish before Euan.
The heaviest at 10lbs 12ozs was caught by Neil Anderson and the prize for the first fish of the day went to Neill Barrett.
The loch teams wish to thank all of the competitors and everyone who bought raffle tickets as well as the many sponsors and providers of prizes and of course Wullie Simpson who organised and managed the fundraiser for them.

Scottish International Loch Teams Cup
Markle 6th February 2016
The first of the three fundraisers got off to a great start with the SANACC International Loch Teams Cup at Markle and the staff there had the fish in excellent condition and did a great job to make sure everyone had an enjoyable time. There was a chilly wind blowing for most off the day which finally eased off in the last 30 minutes but it stayed dry and the conditions were as good as can be expected in February. Anyone who was feeling the cold was warmed at lunchtime with lentil soup provided as ever by Nigel's wife followed by pies and beans provided by the fishery. Just to make sure the chill was erased there was a miniature of whisky, provided by R & M Distribution Ltd, for all competitors and for those that still had room there was a choice of three cakes baked by Brian Mackenzie's wife. There was some fishing done and the 60 competitors landed 257 trout.
The top two rods, Colin Macdonald of Dunoon & District AC and Andrew Barrowman of Granite City AC, had 11 trout apiece with Colin taking the top spot as he was the first of the two to catch a fish. Colin received the winners trophy along with a Greys Rod and Reel while Andrew received an Airflo Switch Pro Reel. Alan Brock and Brian Mackenzie were third and fourth with 9 fish and were followed in 5th and 6th by Stuart Malcolmson and Lee Cartmail who had 8. Alan received a Greys net and Rio flyline; Brian received a Scierra Boat Bag and fly line; Stuart received a Rio fly line and Lee received a Scierra fishing vest. The first fish of the day was caught at 9.15am by Wullie Brash who received a bottle of malt whisky. There were three tagged fished to be caught with superb prizes for whoever caught them Mark Anderson picked up the first of the tagged fish and won a nights bed and breakfast for two at the Lake of Menteith Hotel. Ian Wilson picked up the second one and won a season ticket for Knockhill Racing. The third tagged fish was a bit smarter and kept its freedom.
