2019 Dunlichity Cup Heat 6

Conditions for Heat 6 of this year's Dunlichity Cup were far more favourable than Heat 5, and Gordon Haggart quickly caught the biggest fish of the day on Peg 1 before going on to win the heat with a two fish bag at 5lb 4oz.

Graham Matheson caught 18 fish during the heat and finished second with 4lb 15oz. Jimmy Cooper was third and Neil Pirrie took the bottle for the biggest fish outside of the top 3.

Seven points by virtue of two fish in the last two pegs keep Jamie MacGregor Snr out front at the top of the leader board, with Gordon Haggart closing the gap to ten points.  With two heats left, any one of six can still win this year's Dunlichity Cup, but Jamie is the only one who can clinch victory in Heat 7.

Heat 7 of this year's Dunlichity Cup is on Saturday 12 October at 09.00.

2019 Dunlichity Cup Heat 5

Since the Dunlichity Cup's inception, it is difficult to remember more difficult conditions than those which the 13 competitors had to deal with during Heat 5 of this year's competition.  A very strong, swirling wind made casting difficult, particularly from the far bank.

In spite of the conditions, a lot of fish were caught and taken.  Neil Pirrie had to leave after three pegs, but the two fish for 4lb 3oz which he took were good enough for third place.  

Victory went to Dunlichity Cup newcomer Chris Doherty, with a bag of 7lb 15oz, with Jimmy Cooper second with 4lb 13oz.  Allan Dallas won the bottle with the only fish that he kept.

Jamie Macgregor Snr remains in overall first place, with Denis Howell second, but with three heats remaining, any one of 16 anglers could still take first place.

The sixth heat of the Dunlichity Cup is on Saturday 5 October at 09.00.

2019 Dunlichity Cup Heat 4

Conditions were good for the 4th heat of this year's Dunlichity Cup, and the heat got off to a flying start with fish of 5lb, 3lb 10oz and 3lb 7oz being caught on the first peg.  Sadly, this lulled everyone into a false level of confidence that their next fish was going to be a monster!

Although more big fish were caught, many competitors returned fish early on, then ended up blanking!  Only six competitors took fish, leaving valuable league points unclaimed.

League leader Jamie MacGregor Snr consolidated his position at the top of the leaderboard with a bag of 8lb 8oz, with 2018 newcomer Denis Howell taking second with a bag of 7lb 6oz and Davis Skinner third with 5lb 8oz. Alan Dallas took the bottle for the largest fish outside the top 3.

Denis Howell's second place moves him to second place overall.  Neil Pirrie was also a mover, rising up to fourth place.  With 4 heats still to go, anyone can still win this year's league!

The 5th heat is on Saturday 14 September at 09.00.

Fishing conditions were good for the third heat of this year's Dunlichity Cup.  Unusually, the majority of fish were taken in the afternoon session.

The heat was finally won when Jamie MacGregor Snr caught his second fish during the final peg to finish with a bag of 7lb 1oz.  Neil Pirrie won the bottle for the biggest fish outside the top 3.
