Kenny Miller Reports:
Heat 11 in Scottish Club Championship saw 15 teams competing. There was a brisk westerly wind giving choppy water conditions and rain was falling. As the boats left the shore the wind lessened but the rain continued. A few boats headed for Butts Bay, the majority heading to the west, Sandy Bay, Heronry, Malling shore and Gateside Bay. It proved to be a close competition with five teams weighing-in catches of trout over 20 lbs.

It was great interest that I got a chance to go with some experts from the Forestry Commission to watch them weighing and ringing some local Osprey Chicks. df
