The 2017 Season

2017 Season

CROSBIE

Crosbie winter stock will be arriving 10th Oct at 11.00 If any one can provide assistance with the transfer of the fish it would be most appreciated.  It would also provide you with an opportunity to see the quality of fish that we stock!                                                                                                            Will members fishing Crosbie please ensure that all gates are kept closed at all times, this is most important just now with the lambing season upon us.  Thank you.!


Membership fees have been kept at £80 for the coming season

The Club wishes to welcome new and old members to the 2017 season.  The new seasons stocking should arrive as usual just before the season starts and will be augmented with a second stocking about mid season to spice things up. It is also hoped to add some brown trout stoch to both Outerwards and Crosbie reservoirs about the end of April when we see how the finances stand.  This will of course depend on the membership level,  Those fishing Muirhead will be in for some surprises this year because we stocked a considerable number of very large brown trout between 2.5 and 4 lbs last back end.  Anyone hooking one of these should have a fight on their hands.  While we do not criticise members from taking a fish for the pot we do encourage you to practice catch and release.  The current cost of a 1lb brown trout is well in excess of £3.00 so if they can be preserved as long as possible it will benefit everybodies sport!  Maybe this is a good point to remind you that the catch limits on Muirhead and Outerwards are 2 fish per day  and on Crosbie One fish only per day whether it be brown or rainbow.

Boats and boathouse. Last season was a bit of a disaster as far as the boats were concerned, this wss caused by two problems!        The main one being that the Scottish Water have refused us any further use of the boathouse , this due to health and safety reasons, primarily with the roof.  Although Scottish Water have offered to repair the roof they would have increased our rent by 50% which in turn would have to be passed on to the members!  Even at that this did not cover any repairs to cracks in the walls etc. and the Club would be responsible for the ongoing maintainance.                                                                                                                    "Members must now be aware that the boathouse is strictly out of bounds and any member  contravening this will cause the Club to face recriminations and possibly lose the fishing rights! "

The problem then arose as to what to do with the boats and how to keep them secure.   At the moment it has been decided to place them at each end of the reservoir and secure them with chains and padlocks. The oars will initially be stored in our container at the Largs end all of which can be accessed with your gate key.

Work Parties In order to get everything ready for the new season there is some work needing done  especially to the bridges over the ditches along the road shore and also to get the boats and trailers ready.  For this we intend to organise some work parties so if you can lend a hand whither with a skill or muscle all assistance will be most gratefully received .  Watch out for dates, times etc on this website, also you can give in your name and contact info. at fee paying night.

Finally We are still in need of  a further office bearer to take up the post of Secretary, our treasur is doing a sterling job coping with his own function and keeping the secretarial side under control as well, but it's a lot to expect  of one person . The secretaries position is very interesting and rewarding  and  from past holders of the position not at all onerous.  If you have some basic computer skills although not entirely neccessary and a couple of spare hours a week and are up for a challenge maybe you would like to put yourself foreward for this interesting post.

Lets hope you all have an excellent season and we wish youi tight lines.
