Furious anglers have stalled swell by custodians South Ayrshire Council though a H2O has been forsaken by some-more than 6 feet, digest fishing invalid and withdrawal angling platforms high and dry.

“We met with South Ayrshire Council on Thursday to try and solve a conditions so we can get behind to fishing.

“A dual metre dump means a margins have altered dramatically though we are sincerely certain it can be filled behind up.

“If we mislaid Collenan Reservoir it would have a outrageous impact on a sourroundings and a traveller industry.

“Thousands of people travel a Smugglers Trail and it is a pleasing area.”
