Fly Box Raffle

The Team going to the Spring International at Bewl tied 140 flies which were put in a presentation box and raffled at the first six heats of the National. The draw was done at Carron on 9th May and the box was won by
Kenny McClymont of Ardrossan Eglinton AC. The box is now on its way to Kenny and no doubt the contents will be put to good use during the next few months. The proceeds will be put towards the costs that the team members would otherwise have had to pay themselves. Many thanks to everyone who bought tickets. If you didn't manage to buy a ticket or were unsuccessful don't despair as there will be another box of flies, this time tied by the Autumn Team, which will start at heat 7 at Leven on 21st May. The proceeds from that raffle will go to the Autumn Team.

Fundraisers at Markle, Parkview and New Haylie

The 2013 fundraisers got off to a flying start at Markle and Parkview Fisheries on the Saturday and Sunday of 2nd and 3rd February and finished at New Haylie on Saturday 9th February. This year the weather was kind to us with all three competitions being able to go ahead on the booked dates. It was cold on all days but if you could find the sun and hide from the wind it was very pleasant. Piping hot soup and pies at lunchtime warmed those that couldn't find the sun.

The 2013 international loch teams wish to thank the many organisations that provided sponsorship or prizes, the competitors who took part on the day and the staff at all three fisheries who provided superb fishing.

Ronnie Glass, captain of the Spring Team made a trophy from a Lake of Menteith trout and donated it to raise funds for the teams. The trophy was purchased by Gus Armour who had it engraved and donated it back to be awarded annually to the winner of this competition.

The winner at Markle and the first recipient of the trophy was Martin Smith who had 11 fish. Martin won by one fish from Stevie Anderson who caught and released 10 fish. Andrew Glasgow and Wullie Brash were third and fourth with 8 fish while Gus Armour came close to winning the trophy with his 8 fish. Where there was tie with the number of fish the final placings were determined by the times of the first fish caught. A total of 250 fish were caught and released.

Markle Result



Not content with running the heat at Markle on the Saturday, SANACC Chairman Jock Kettles travelled north on the Sunday to take part in the competition at Parkview and in a very tight finish he just shaded out Rab Maxwell to be top rod. Both Jock and Rab had 10 fish but with Jock's best fish going to the scales at 10lb 4oz it was just too good for the 9lb 6oz fish caught by Rab. S Bonner was third with 8 fish.

It was a superb day at Parkview with 74 fish being caught and released. Nine of the 74 fish were over 7lbs. Mr Bonner also had the heaviest fish which weighed in at 10lb 5oz.

Result from Parkview

New Haylie

Thirty competitors contested the third fundraiser at New Haylie on Saturday 9th February and between them they caught and released 201 fish. The trout were moving throughout the day and although there were hotspots at a couple of pegs, fish were caught in most areas. With representatives from most of the Scottish International groups taking part this was never going to be an easy fundraiser to win.

Top rod was the Youths Secretary, Andy Boylan with 17 fish. Second with 16 fish was Nigel Burns who was the Captain of the 2012 Loch Team that took gold at Brenig. In third place was Peter Edge with 13 fish. Kevin Andrews from the 2012 Stillwater team was fourth with 12 fish and Jock Kettles also from the 2012 Loch Team that took gold at Brenig was fifth with 11 fish.
