The final day of competition for the Mackenzie Shield and the Club Championship took place on
Saturday 13th August. Falling in a mini heatwave this afternoon Competition was looking like
being a tough challenge. One concession on the conditions was a decent breeze from the east.
There was also a little cloud cover early on before the strong sun broke through. Four anglers
started the competition with three weighing in fish. The result was as follows;
- Lee Lindop. 6 fish 4lb 5.3oz
- Graeme Hendry. 1 fish. 0lb 9.9oz
- Duncan MacGillivray. 1 fish. 0lb 9.4oz
This final result saw Lee Lindop take the Club Championship. He had begun the day with a slender lead over runner up Graeme Hendry and extended this lead on the day with a very decent bag given the difficult conditions. Lee’s consistency across the Competitions is to be applauded and he ran out a worthy winner. Congratulations Lee!
Graeme Hendry also deserves praise for some great bags of fish and staying in contention throughout. Graeme also had the consolation of catching the biggest fish across the Competitions, with a fish of 1lb14.7 oz. Well done Graeme!
As well as displaying considerable skill with a fly rod both of these anglers adopt an approach that requires a huge physical effort to cover water and seek out fish in rough terrain and a variety of weather conditions.
