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.

Dunlichity Cup Heat 3 Results

17 anglers competed for the third heat of the Dunlichity Cup at Dunlichity Trout Fishery. Conditions were bright and blustery and temperatures rose throughout the day.

George Skinner and Graham Matheson set the early pace, taking their two fish bags within the first two pegs at 6lb 8oz and 6lb 4oz respectively.

George Swanson's 5lb 1oz rainbow was the biggest fish taken but the eventual winner was Jamie MacGregor from Munlochy, with a bag of 8lb.  Aeneas Taylor was second with 7lb 9oz and George Skinner was third.

2014 Dunlichity Cup - Heat 2

16 anglers competed in the second heat in this year's Dunlichity Cup.

With the heat being held towards the end of a stocking period, it was inevitable that it would be a challenge to catch large bags.  Competitors were warned to "return fish at their peril"!  The advice was sound, with only 4 competitors taking a two fish bag.

Ian Young won the heat with a single fish - a lovely 8lb 9oz rainbow. Second was Magnus Macdonald and third was James Gray.  David Skinner won the bottle for the biggest fish outside of the top three.

The next heat is on Saturday 7 June.

The Tigers Have Arrived!

In our last stocking, we have introduced some Tiger Trout (cross between at Brown Trout and a Brook Trout).

Given the cost of stocking Tigers, we have designated them as "Sporting" fish, so they should be returned with the minimum of handling.

We also put in a large proportion of Blue Trout in the last stocking.
