Heather Cary and Strathpeffer Flyfishing Class visit Dunlichity on Saturday 12 April

The lochans will be visited on Saturday afternoon, from 13.00 to 16.00 by a local fly fishing class.

Local Fisher, Heather Cary from Drumnadrochit,  Scottish Ladies National Champion,  Commonwealth Fly Fisher and Qualified Instructor/Coach  has been conducting a Fly Fishing Course based at Strathpeffer Community Centre, the final day of the Course will be held at Dunlichity Fishery on 12th April when the participants will have a chance to try out their new found skills!

Heather says “ I find Dunlichity an excellent venue with first class, quality fishing and really helpful staff, the set up is ideal for teaching as the lay-out enables one to keep an eye on what’s going on!!”

Heather is, for a 3rd time, a member of the Scottish Ladies Commonwealth Fly Fishing Team which will be competing in the Commonwealth Championships in Devon in June 2014. The Championships are bi-annual and are, this year, being hosted by England (on the last occasion they were held in Tasmania in 2012 where Heather was top rod in the team).

Heather will be teaching Fly Fishing at the Highland Field Sports Fair at Moy on 1 – 2 Aug 2014 on behalf of the Inverness Angling Club. In order to further her teaching experience she attended the World Famous Joan Wulff Fly Fishing School in upstate New York in 2013 which she described as being fascinating and feeling extremely privileged to be able to spend time with Joan discussing teaching methods and techniques.

Heather intends to organise an advanced casting clinic through Strathpeffer later in the year and fly tying classes are at present under discussion. Her website is www.heathercary.com where further details may be obtained.

Fishery Update - Sunday 23 February

As a result of the mild weather, we have restocked the fishery this week, the first time that we have stocked in February in the seven years that we have been here.  Good bags have been caught in the past few days, with Magnus MacDonald and George Skinner being particularly successful.

The steady rain that we have had over the past 48 hours have left the banks quite wet and slippery - take care when walking around the lochans.

The electric sockets have been fixed in the Bothy, so the kettle and microwave are back in use.

David Skinner wins 2013 Dunlichity Cup

2013 Dunlichity Cup Winner David Skinner

After a tense final heat, David Skinner secured enough points to take the 2013 Dunlichity Cup. Ever present and former winner David beat son and also previous winner Liam by five points (how costly was Liam's trip to Alton Towers earlier in the season?).
David was a deserved winner, with two first places and two second places. James Gray, George Skinner and James Watson also deserve credit for keeping the pressure on the two leaders throughout the season.

Some statistics for the year:
  • 27 anglers competed throughout the season.
  • Over 362lbs of fish were taken.
  • In excess of £1200 was awarded in prizes.

The final heat was a proved to be very tight with six 4lb+ fish being caught. First place was taken by Graham Matheson with a two fish bag of 8lb 15ozs (including the biggest fish of the day at 6lb 12oz). Second was George Skinner and third was Liam Skinner. Michael Kerr won the bottle for the biggest fish outside of the top 3 (5lb 9oz).
