The DDAC Competitions this coming year need to be be looked at with a view to try
and reconstruct them into a more amicable and enjoyable event.
If any member has an idea, please email the committee, all thoughts are welcome.
The Loch Tarsan five Saturday event has decreased over the years to a number not adequate enough to hold a proper competition. There was only two or three
members in 2019 that actually competed over the five Saturdays.
Which ended up with one winner going through to the SANACC National
The SANACC Competitions: The National and the Scottish Clubs are not set in stone
within this club, they can be withdrawn, as it is dependent on the numbers fishing our
competitions, we have already withdrawn the one day challenge trophy.
We do recognise that not all members are competition minded, but for those
members who would like to join in, or members who enjoy the local events,
you do not need to go forward to the SANACC Competitions if so desired, after all
competitions are a fun day out, not just to win a place in the SANACC Comps.
The other events excluding the ‘Pitman trophy’ at the Reservoir were not that far
behind in numbers, generally around six or seven members enjoying a day out, a
few more would help improve the day’s enjoyment.
The Loch Eck trophy (or just a day’s fishing anytime) , has the ability to be a great
day out as one does not need to have special rods or flies, only what you would
need for Brown trout fishing, though heavier tippets is a help.
The benefit from joining in on the competitions is we all can learn from the anglers
who fish regular on our waters, after all, we are all members of the same club.
