Signs have been erected at Black & White Lochs, Soulseat and Magille regarding the algae. Best advice is to keep pets from drinking water and avoid contact with water as much as possible. It is still ok to fish but make sure you follow common sense hygiene precautions. It is likely Dindinnie and even Knockquhassen will follow shortly.

WARNING. A small dog got tangled up with tackle last week at White Loch. This is unacceptable and WILL result in any member caught offending being banned “sine die” from Association. These actions could also result in loss of waters.

The AGM was held on 12th dec and an excellent turnout of 50 members enjoyed a number of lively, but good natured, discussions about changes for next season. Thanks were due to many memebers for their help with various maintenance projects. John Grierson and Bobby Greenhill have restarted fly tying classes and were pleased to get a donation from Robin McLean of materials for this. If anyone else has unused bits and pieces please let any committee member know and we can arrange collection.
