The Machair Claret is tied on a size 8-12 Ka­masan B175 hook, us­ing black thread. The tail is a few fi­bres from the flank feather of a French par­tridge.

The body is claret seal’s fur, palmered with one claret and one black cock hackle, wound to­gether and ribbed with oval gold. Fin­ish with a head hackle of black hen.

Dries, Buzzers and var­i­ous lures have been tak­ing plenty of fish – some of them hefty spec­i­mens – off the top or just un­der at the Orchill Trout Fish­ery, near Braco.

James Gunn from Perth caught a fine 8lb rain­bow, fol­lowed by a beau­ti­ful blue trout of 8lb on Buzzers. Al­lan Mitchell (Stir­ling) took three fish for 11lb 8oz – best 6lb 8oz – on a Yel­low Owl.

The Lake of Men­teith con­tin­ues to fish well with the top-fish­ing ar­eas lately be­ing Lochend, Ho­tel Bay and Shear Point.

Boats are still avail­able for the Kirk and School Fundraiser on Sun­day, Novem­ber 5. Boats are out from 11am un­til about 4pm, fol­lowed by a BBQ, re­fresh­ments, raf­fle and a song or two.

It’s a great day with the cost of a two-man boat be­ing £45, book­able through the fish­ery.
