Loch Fad dates confirmed for February

PAC members have two more days' fishing reserved on Loch Fad, special events organiser Mark Skinner said tonight.

We've now confirmed access to the water, on the Isle of Bute, over the weekend of Saturday, February 2 and Sunday, February 3; 2008.

Mark said: "Slowly but surely our winter's calendar of events are coming together. We are especailly pleased to be able to offer our members a chance to fish Fad and our Scottish LO Scott Davidson has done a great job in ensuring we will be having two events on there.

"Loch Fad has been producing some very good fish and any members who decide to attend will be in with a chance of a fish of a lifetime."

Fad has produced pike topping 40lbs in recent seasons. Click here for previous stories on this blog.

Mark added places for the PAC's first events of season - access to Rutland Reservoir on Monday, September 24, two weeks before it opens for pike fishing - were selling fast.

"There are still boats available, but applications are coming in daily, so get those applications in now," he said.

Full details of how to apply were included in Pikelines, which PAC members received last week.

More events are likely to be announced soon. We are currently in talks with management at a private gravel pit complex in the East Midlands.
