Here's Bothy being lifted in early November. Bothy likes to get away for a few months during the winter. We're not sure where he goes, but rumour has it he visits a beach in the Seychelles. Lets hope someone took the milk out of the fridge!

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.
