|Alex Knight Salmon: After a few days fishing on the Deveron with a group of friends, Alex and his friend James decided to take a hike up to some hard to get to and under-fished water. Seeing a big fish show, Alex fished down to where he saw it, once his fly was in 3ft of water everything just locked up solid and a croc was on. The battle ensued with Alex fighting a big fish in fast water off a spit of an island making it difficult to tame but he got the net under this lump that swam off after a couple of quick photos.|
|George Gall Brown Trout: George was fishing Rescobie Loch in a local club competition on Saturday when he hooked this Brownie that put up a great fight with some amazing runs. Caught on a pearly cormorant it weighed 7 lb 15oz|
|Andrew McPeake Tench: Autumn has its challenges with very blustery conditions, so after being soaked on his last two outings, Andrew chose a venue with some shelter from the wind. Setting off at 5am and fishing by first light targeting silver fish with a mixture if Swim Stim Groundbait and Krill Meal. The target was silver fish but but he surprisingly hooked two two Tench that got off in the reeds. Convinced by 10am he'd lost his chance to net one, Andrew's bite alarm went crazy and a fish shot off to the middle of the loch, after what seemed an age he landed this a tench of 4lb 6oz. Andrew was chuffed so late in the season and can't wait until next spring to target them again.|
|Blair Laing Flounder: Caught on Black Lug|
|John Kenny Pike: This 35lb lump of a Pike was caught on a private water using |
deadbaits and tackle all bought from the Glasgow Angling Centre
|Connor Stewart Perch: Connor caught this specimen at a Scottish loch, when he saw how big the fish was and how lightly hooked it was during the fight he let out a sigh of relief when he slipped the net under it.|
Darren Mclean Brown Trout: Fishing for Salmon Darren heard a big splash up river. In a shallow run he cast his 28g salmo toby upstream, using a fast retrieve when my rod bent. Initially he thought he'd had hooked a Grilse but it turned out to be a nice brown trout. He didn't weigh the fish just snapped a quick photo and returned it.
|Kobi Wilson Perch: Kobi, who's 10 caught his biggest ever Perch at Whitefield Loch near Glenluce. He couldbn't believe the size of it when he reeled it in, quickly unhooked a cheeky picture and released back into the loch.|
