The lock Eck competition went ahead from Saturday the 1 st October and ran till the Saturday the 8th of October.
There was a very poor turn out from the Dunoon and District angling club members for having over 140 members the turnout was simply shocking.
In total only 3 members fished the competition, they were:
Graham Henry fished on Wednesday the 5th but unfortunately did not contact any of the lochs wild fish.
Saturday the 8th, Bill Rankin and myself Allan Miller fished the competition, we had a bit of mixed weather ranging from flat calm to torrential rain and at times high winds.
The fishing was hard going as always, with Bill Rankin only catching one 10″ sea trout.
I landed one Brown trout of about 11,1/2 inches but this was out of season and did not count to the weigh in. Shortly after that I hooked a very big fish which offered a very short fight as it snapped my 8 lb leader.
So the winner for the 2022 Loch Eck Competition is Bill Rankin with one Sea Trout, congratulations Bill.
There’s always next year.
If any club members has any ideas on how to make the competition more attractive so more people enter, please feel free to contact me or any of the committee with your thoughts.
