Lintrathan Fishery opens

LINTRATHAN Loch fishery opened on Saturday with a fair number of anglers out on the loch.

There were doubts as to whether the fishery would be ready as north east gale force winds had struck the previous Monday night, causing the loss of four boats and engines as well as the pontoon dragging anchors, resulting in the walkway ending up in the water.

However, the committee and other members worked every evening and were able to get things back on track for Saturday with only two boats being eventually written off.

The opening competition took place on Sunday with the winner, Jim Stanger of Lintrathen AC taking five fish for 9lbs 1ozs. Second was Graham McIntosh, NCR AC, with four fish for 9lbs. Graham also took the prize for the best fish for one at 4lbs 13ozs. Best junior: Michael Craig, Brechin AC with three fish for 4lbs 5ozs.

Saturday results: E. Carroll and G. Smith, nine fish for 18lbs 8ozs; Gavin Ferguson and Alan Robertson, 10 fish for 19lbs 8ozs; Messrs Maxwell and Wilson, 10 fish for 17lbs. Club result: Rainbow AC: 48 fish for 73lbs.
