2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 4

15 competitors lined up for Heat 4 of this year's Dunlichity Cup.

Although many fish were caught during the first peg, none were taken.  George Ritchie made up for this in Peg 2, taking both of his fish for a combined weight of 4lb 3oz.  League leaders Gordon Haggart (3lb 15oz) and George Skinner (4lb 0oz) also took their first fish in Peg 2.

It was in Peg 3, however, that eventual heat winner Ian Young caught the largest fish of the day, at 6lb 5oz.  He later caught a 2lb 15oz fish to finish on 8lb 4oz.  George Skinner came second with a bag of 5lb 9oz and Darren Skinner third, with 4lb 5oz.  Gordon Haggart took the bottle but did not add to his 3lb 15oz fish.

In the overall standings, George Skinner moved closer to Gordon Haggart, with Ian Young and George Ritchie also consolidating their positions in the league.




The next heat of the Dunlichity Cup is on Saturday 12 August at 09.00.

2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 3

14 competitors attended Heat 3 of this year's Dunlichity Cup.

David Skinner quickly went into the lead, taking his two fish totalling 8lb 3oz within the first two pegs.  As in the recent Troutmaster fish-off, this meant that he had to watch others close in on him in the remaining pegs.

League leader Gordon Haggart caught the largest fish of the day in  Peg 3 but was unable to add to it. 

Graham Matheson (6lb 0oz) and Ian Young (5lb 14oz) closed in on David, but a quiet two remaining pegs meant that he held onto first place.

After 3 Heats, Gordon Haggart remains in first place from George Skinner and Graham Matheson.  Last year's winner and runner-up, Liam and Jamie still have everything to do!


Heat 4 is on Saturday 1 July.

2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 2

The continued absence of some of last season's high fliers meant that other competitors had the opportunity to take advantage by gaining valuable league points.

Gordon Haggart followed up his second place in the first heat with top spot in the second heat with a bag of 7lb 2oz.  George Skinner came second with 6lb 3oz and Graham Matheson third with 5lb 4oz.  Ronnie Macdonald won the bottle.

Last year's winner Liam Skinner and Heat 1 winner George Ritchie both failed to trouble the leader board!

After two heats, Gordon Haggart leads the table with 19 points from George Skinner, with Neil Pirrie and Ross Fraser joint third.

Reg Cambridge

It is with great regret that we report the sad death of Dunlichity regular, Reg Cambridge.  Aged 93, Reg was known to many of us for his dry sense of humour and his fly fishing prowess. He competed in the Dunlichity Troutmaster fish off only a few years ago.

His funeral will be held at Inverness Crematorium at 10.00am on Wednesday 3 May 2017.

2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 1

The 2017 Dunlichity Cup got underway in April.  Wet conditions meant that the heat took place a week later than normal, and as a result, a number of regular competitors were otherwise engaged.  Last year's top three were missing, giving others the chance to set the early pace.

Everyone caught fish and all but two of the fish taken were 3lbs or above.

George Ritchie, who was forth last year, took the honours with 7lb 5 oz.  Gordon Haggart and Scott Fraser were joint second, with Gordon taking the second prize on countback.  James Watson took the bottle.

Everything to play for!
