Coarse loch

Dave Latte,Bob Jackson,Scott Arthur,Sarah Arthur and Valerie Arthur all enjoyed sport taking roach,bream to 2lbs, making up most of their bags.Meat and maggot have been the best of the baits on method feeder.Carp should begin to be more active with some heat and will improve fishing for coarse anglers.Please remember to book on this loch.
