Fly Fishing at Antermony Loch
Antermony Loch is at the foot of the Campsie Hills between Milton of Campsie and Inchterf. The Loch is home to a variety of wildlife: water hen, coots, swans, ducks, kingfishers, bats and - to our dismay - the occasional cormorant. It is not uncommon to be fishing with ospreys and other birds of prey circling overhead. The loch is stocked on a regular basis mainly with brown trout and a few hundred rainbows in the high summer. New members are welcome. Please contact us for further details.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the instructions by the U.K. Government for everyone to stay at home, the Loch will be closed immediately, and for the duration of the lockdown. I hope members understand why this is the only sensible course of action.

A few brave hardy (read:mad) souls ventured out in boats, while others set up their tackle, blethered for hours and Read more about Start of the new season 2020[…]

Last month, on the 20th September 2019, the 2019 Autumn International was held at the Lake of Menteith fishery. Our very own Jim Twaddle, Club President, gained his first cap for Scotland.

The curtain came down on the brown trout season yesterday, Sunday 6th October 2019. Club President Jim Twaddle headed out to the loch for the last cast of the season yesterday and although the weather started off predictably windy and cold, after a few cups of tea the wind relented and he was joined by Read more about End of the 2019 season[…]
The Doo Cup this year was held on 18 July in truly atrocious wind and rain. Colin Biggar ended the winner with three trout for 3lb 10oz, narrowly beating Alan Small into second place by just 2oz.
