    Kinross trout fishery - formerly Heatheryford - are having a float tube competition.
    Open to all and float tube hire available for 10 - all you need are chest waders.
    Saturday 26th October

    Fished this last year and was a cracking friendly competition.

    Cant recommend it enough!
    I tried the float tube for the first time last year and now I cant get enough of it.
    Takes relaxation to another level.
    Never a tree behind you waiting to snag your fly.
    Wind always at your back.
    And best of all that line of trout that seem to know just how far you can cast and keep rising about 5yds further out are in trouble.

    Gary is the man to talk to at Kinross - he charges 10 to hire the tube and all the equipment needed - with the exception of waders.

    On my 3rd tube now, it's that good. Have caught fish between my legs, the fish ignore you. It also means you can use lighter rods as with the give in the rod plus the drag of the boat fish can be landed much easier.

    Should have mentioned the prize.
    Garry puts up a years full membership to the winner.
    Think there is only 7 or 8 in it atm - he's trying to get that up to 15.
    Fished this last year and was a fun, friendly competition.
