“Goldenloch”
July-22nd- 2019, Week 27

The thing is that after 30 plus years of being involved and running a fishery, there is a way of doing things, and knowing what to do, a lot is anticipating the season, what anglers want from a fishery, for example over the past few years everyone has electric motors and they want to get their vehicles right up to the boats, more elderly lads want to get to the waters edge, so as they don’t have to walk far, however the one thing I never ever expected was an complete infestation of this disgusting pest, anglers expect to catch fish, quite rightly so, I have to do something to get back to where we were before, what I am trying to achieve, is complete annihilation of these pesky sticklebacks, therefore a bit of planning and some very interesting strategy is being applied, firstly the purchase of two industrial electro fishing machines, then the relevant probes and earths manufacture, it took two weeks to get the machines here, plus with manufacture they are now up and running, impressed “Hell Yeah”, reckon we are a couple of hundred thousand pin heads less, dead, electrocuted, its hard work though, but the fruits are being seen already, the fishing is still pretty ****, but its definitely getting better, the fish in the loch do not like, an electric stun, they can be quite clearly seen and boy are they fit, I mean not just jumping fit but they are in great physical shape, on Thursday past an amazing 10lb fish was caught using a Diawl Bach it took over 30 mins to land and its 2nd wind was just pure energy, so back to the stickle backs, my new device “The Grinder” is doing its job, good style, with the cover hopefully going on tomorrow its efficiency and effectiveness will be increased a thousand fold, traps and netting are yet to arrive, they will be deployed in the next week, so with Andi Halley who made an amazing job at weed removal, we have in the loch only one weedy area, and that is going to stay, as it is just crammed with ground feeding, snails and shrimps etc, over the weekend and last week a lot of fishing has been enjoyed, Grant McGregor 4 all returned, now on Tuesday, John Bashford was giving lessons to a 10 year old, and his Grandad, both on there own caught a 3lb trout each and John then went on to catch 4 most were on Diawl Bachs others fishing basically have all caught fish albeit just one or two, On a lighter note our local photographer John Brown took this rather interesting drone flight over the hill, this so as people who have never been can see what is up there.
