    The second day put the young anglers to the test by getting a hands on experience of fishing at Carman Fishery. They all set up the rods and despite the windy conditions they all managed to fish very well. They had a large selection of flies they could use thanks to generous donations to the Trust. They could either use similar imitations to the invertebrates that we found in the burn or alternatively use large rainbow trout lures. Sadly a few fish came off the hook but a brown trout was caught and safely released.

    On our final day together we ventured to the mouth of the River Leven at Balloch. We caught perch, roach and brown trout on light tackle and all were released back safely. We learnt more about a variety of fish we have in Loch Lomond including pike, powan and the invasive ruffe. Before finishing up for the day the student’s art and craft skills were put to the test as they made and designed their very own caddis and case!

    We very much enjoyed our days together and it was a pleasure to work with young people that have come from different areas and seeing them get along so well. We hope that these days provided a fun and educational experience and we hope to see them again in follow up sessions later in the year.

    We would like to thank the Tullochan staff for their huge part in making the experience work for all those involved (and for the humour and amazing pictures!).

    With further thanks to the “Greggs Foundation” for their support of our Leven Legacy Project, Dr Guthrie’s Association for their generous funding to purchase the equipment necessary for this project and AsdaDunbarton for their generous donations of food and drink. #Greggs4good#TheLevenLegacyProject
