KGS activities – 1st June – Kirbister Loch


I received this little report from Skip Sommervile which covers the first day of the KGS end of term activities.


Wednesday  1st June fishing activity on Kirbister Loch

The weather was a moderate cold North wind creating difficult angling conditions, we arrived at the OTFA Hatchery around 10am to tackle up. The pupils then headed for sheltered sections of the loch to cast onto the most sheltered waters.

Within minutes a small trout had been caught creating enthusiasm amongst the group. Due to the wind speed of up to 25mph many were hiding against the sections of higher shore line. However by lunch time there were some 7 fish of varying sizes landed by the eager pupils.

With the day at an end all the pupils mustered back at the OTFA Hatchery around 2.30pm to lay out their spoils and trade stories of their catches and of course the one that got away.
