Alex Brown Trout: Fishing Loch of Clumly where Alex had blanked for the whole of last season, he was rewardeed with 5lb+ of wild Orkney Brownie that Alex described as the bonniest fish he's ever seen.

 Cez Simeons Roosterfish: This stunning rooster fish estimated at 73lb was caught off the coast of Pedasi, Panama on a guided trip hosted by Sam Wadman of Fish Pedasi. The colossal exotic, engulfed a livebait blue runner on his Penn Slammer Reel and utter pandemonium ensued once the fish realised it was hooked. Run after run saw the behemoth rooster eventually gas out after 15 minutes fight time and two sore arms later.

Jason Love Pike: 9 year old Jason caught his first pike at loch awe. When he brought it in it had line, hooks and a dead roach attached to it. With help from his Dad it was cleared and put back safely.

Anthony Rasmussen Salmon: This huge fish was caught Monday 11/09 on the Boat Pool of the North Esk, weighing in at 40lb in the weighnet it's the biggest fish of the year on the Esk. Measured and safely released to continue it's journey.

Ramsay Steele Perch: Ramsey fishes for Pike and Perch every weekend and any weeknight chance he gets, he caught this perch using a 4ft Shakespeare Kayak outfit he bought from the Glasgow Angling Centre. It took a large spoon and fought as hard as a Pike twice it's size!

Henry Watt Trout: A trip to Willowgate Fisheries was a success with 3 rainbow trout on a little silver spinner.

Greig Lyall Brown Trout: Fishing his local river, as soon as his 2 inch Rapala hit the water this big fish smashed it. At first Greig thought it was a salmon due to the size of it. My younger brother had seen it turn in the water and shouted its a massive Brownie before sliding down the bank so he could net the fish!

Ian Astill Pollack: Ian and his friend Mark headed out on our boat for an early morning session on some inshore marks.  This Pollack took the lure on the drop almost immediately after it hit the water and crash dived to the bottom.  After a brilliant fight on light gear he managed to get it to the net.

Henry Watt Brown Trout: Very nice Brown trout caught on the River Earn

Seb Dormand Grayling: Caught on a gold bead pheasant tail nymph whilst fishing on the River Clyde, tied using a pheasant tail passed on to me from a friend's mother whilst she was out a walk. Seb thought he'd snagged a log as it wouldn't budge for the first few seconds.

William Macdonald Mackerel: 1.84lb mackerel caught on Loch Fyne  using a set of Daylights, William said it took like an express train and he thought it was a Pollack until it showed itself.
