Dunlichity Cup Heat 6 Results

As a result of holidays and other commitments, only eight competitors arrived for Heat 6.  Although this was below the minimum number, we decided to go ahead with the heat but with reduced prizes.

James Watson went into an early lead, taking both fish (3lb and 2lb 13oz) in the first peg.  James Gray caught the biggest fish of the day in peg 2, and David Skinner took his bag (3lb 5oz and 3lb 5oz) by the end of peg 3.

Martin Haberfield kept up his record of having scored points in every heat with a fish in the third peg.

The heat was, however won by Neil Pirrie, who with two fish in peg 6 (3lb 6oz and 3lb 9oz) beat James Gray by a single ounce!

The overall competition is hotting up, with James Gray going into a one point lead over Graham Matheson.  At least ten anglers have a realistic chance of winning the Cup over the final two heats.

The penultimate heat of the 2014 Dunlichity Cup is on Saturday 4 October at 09.00.

Dunlichity Cup Heat 5 - Saturday 9 August

Only ten competitors turned up for what proved to be the most successful heat of this year's competition so far.

Martin Haberfield chose to take his first two fish and was finished before the end of the first peg.  Indeed, everyone had taken their first fish by the end of the second peg, and four had finished after peg 3.

Liam Skinner had to leave at 11.30 due to other commitments, and in true Liam fashion, caught his second fish at 11.29!

First place went to John Allison who was competing for the first time this year, with a bag of 6lb 14oz.  This just pipped Graham Matheson into second place by one ounce, with James Gray third.  The bottle went to James Watson.

Things are hotting up in the overall competition, with Graham Matheson joining George Skinner at the top of the leaderboard with 25 points. With three heats left, there is everything to play for!
The next heat is on Saturday 6 September at 09.00.

Fishery Closed - Tuesday 12 August

I said that we needed more water for the lochans!

Access roads to the Fishery are completely flooded and are impassable.  Given that it still raining heavily at 08.30, there is no point opening today.  We will update the Blog when there are any developments.

Dunlichity Cup Heat 4 Results

A record 21 competitors turned up for the fourth heat of the 2014 Dunlichity Cup.  Newcomers included Ryan Campbell, Gavin Mackie, Jordan Grant and Gordon Haggart.

The bright conditions resulted in a lot of fish being seen but fewer being landed!  The first two pegs saw many fish being hooked but getting off before they could be netted.

James Watson led the way with a nice 5lb 2oz fish, with Jamie MacGregor following up with a 4lb 9oz fish.  James' fish was the biggest fish of the day.

As the pegs progressed, it became apparent that anyone taking two fish were likely to be in the running for the prizes.  So it proved, with Martin Haberfield winning with two fish to 6lb 3oz, with George Skinner second (5lb 9oz) and Ian Young third (5lb 5oz).  A number of competitors regretted putting fish back earlier in the day!

Special mention for debutant Jordan Grant, who caught a nice 4lb 4oz fish in the last ten minutes of the last peg, courtesy of a fly donated by Ian Young.

After four heats, George Skinner has moved to the head of the leaderboard, with Martin Haberfield second.  Eight anglers are within ten points of the top spot.
 

Please note that next month's heat is on the second Saturday of the month, 9th August.
