2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 6 - Saturday 2 September

With only three heats left in this year's competition, leader George Skinner's absence gave others an opportunity to close the gap at the top of the leader board.

There was lots of action on hte first peg, with 25 fish being caught.  Only three were taken, and a number of competitors were left ruing their decision not to take at least one fish early on.

Darren Skinner had to leave after the fourth peg, and left leading with two fish at 4lb 8oz.  The lead only lasted to the fifth peg, when eventual winner Liam Skinner took his second fish for a bag of 5lb 9oz. Graham Matheson took third place with 3lb 14oz, and Ian Young took the bottle for the biggest fish outside of the top three.


After the sixth heat, we have join leaders at the top - George Ritchie and Gordon Haggart, closely followed by George Skinner one point behind. Any one of nine competitors could still win with two heats to go, and this is the first time that going into the penultimate heat, we know that nobody can win the Cup until the last heat.

The seventh heat is on Saturday 7 October at 09.00.

2017 Dunlichity Cup Heat 5 - Saturday 12 August

12 anglers competed in what could probably be called "The 1lb 13oz Heat", given the number of fish caught with the same weight during the day. 

As a consequence, bag weights were lower than normal, with only two competitors taking two fish. League leader Gordon Haggart blanked, as did third place Ian Young. 

The heat was won by George Ritchie, second was John Allison and third was George Skinner.  Reigning champion Liam Skinner won the bottle and secured his first points of the season.

In the overall standings, George Skinner now leads, with George Ritchie second and long time leader, Gordon Haggart third.  With three heats remaining, any one of 13 competitors can still win the Cup.

The next heat is on Saturday 2 September at 09.00.

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.
