First of the year for club water

Donnie Mackay has put in a lot of hours on the club water of the River Ness this year. And he got due reward for his efforts today (July 14) with a cock fish of 5.25 lbs from the top of the Little Isle Pool.

The fish was attracted by a Red Frances — a fly that has proved increasingly popular, and successful, on the Ness in recent years. The fly was a gift from vice president Bill Byers.

Donnie was delighted with his catch but disappointed that he could not release it to continue its journey upstream. He said: “I tried to return it but it flicked its tail and went belly up. All efforts to revive it failed and it was humanely dispatched,”
