|Every dawn is different|
We have caught some magnificent pike, we have also caught a very large number of fish and I can't recall a single individual which didn't give a good account of itself. Our time has been further enhanced by the chance meeting with Davie Robertson (Central Scotland Pike Anglers) and the company of Alan Gray (the land owner) - wonderful experiences.

Not, for her, long hours stalking the margins for wary perch - discarded dead baits were far
easier fare and she knew exactly where to find them.

We've had some fantastic times but, as is the case, all good things must come to an end. I sincerely hope that 2015 isn't my final trip to the loch, yet there is so much more we want to do and, as Benno has said, "let's go somewhere warm, so it feels like a holiday!" Where will this take us - who knows?
