Here's Scotty Abbott (four t's, two b's), Bailiff, looking proper happy with a fine trout (one troot) on a windy day. He got his fish on a size 12 fry pattern fly. Scotty can catch fish in the most inhospitable conditions and on days when no one else is catching. Well done!

Drum roll please (I'm trying to make this more exciting as we don't have a picture), Mr C Forrest of Edinburgh, permit number 24229. Well done Mr Forrest, the club secretary will be in touch. Thanks for completing your catch return and winning your free day permit. Come back next month for another exciting winning permit announcement. Last minute addition: The Picture!

Much more fish activity showing now at Harlaw, and some great captures. Here are members John Balfour (above) and Ronnie Robinson (below) showing off some fantastic trout. Ronnie took his 7lb 8oz fish on a Viva based rabbit zonker in black and green with a gold bead. John's fish fell to a buzzer. Thanks to Boss Bailiff Jim McComb for the details and pictures.

Due to continued low water levels, Threipmuir and much of the top end of Harlaw are unfishable. To compensate for the limited fishing opportunities we've reduced our permit price to £20. This offer will stand from now until the end of the season. The same four fish limit catch and release thereafter rule, still applies.

Please take extra care on the banks, the ground is very soft in places and there is still very deep water very close to the bank.
