The day started off cloudy but cleared away in the afternoon and the loch was quite low and muddy in parts for fishing.
Results for the first Tarsan comp, 8/04/2017 are as follows:
Seven members came to the weigh in at 6pm in the boathouse and the top rod for the day was Lee Lindop with 10 fish at 7lbs 10ozs. Second was Keith Mackenzie with 10 fish at 6lbs 8ozs and third was Bill Rankin with 7 fish at 4lbs 9ozs. The heaviest fish of the day was caught by Lee at 1lbs 5ozs
Some of the members who fished on Day 1 of the Tarsan Competition, a glorious day but quite breezy at times, and some good catches were made … results to follow soon !
This Saturday (8th April) is the first day of the Tarsan Competition. Bank fishing only, it starts at 12 noon, with the weigh-in at the boathouse at 6pm. Forecast seems very nice, all members are welcome. Please come along and give the usual attenders something to think about, as the number of competitors has been dwindling in recent years.
The 67th Annual Dinner of Dunoon and District Angling Club was held in the Argyll Hotel on Saturday 26 November and was attended by 43 members and guests. An excellent meal was enjoyed by all, with the speakers being Mike Russell MSP and Sir Jamie McGrigor.

A. Cameron Cup (outings) Bill Rankin
Heaviest fish (outings) Bill Rankin
Loch Eck Trophy Keith MacKenzie
Jimmy Docherty Rover Trophy Bill Rankin

Also, following a successful competition earlier in the year, the Thompson Cup was returned to DDAC by Ronnie Stevenson of Dunrod Angling Club.
This years winner of the Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy is Bill Rankin .. well done Bill !
It would be nice to see more members enter this competition next year, the rivers and lochs are waiting to be explored, and are not fished as often as they should be. Make a point of visiting different waters in the new season, as wild fishing is what it’s all about !
The winner for this year of the Loch Eck Trophy is Keith McKenzie with his 8lb sea-trout, well done Keith ! … The event was rather poorly attended, which is a shame, because fishing for wild trout is what the sport is all about. Maybe next year will get more members fishing, lets hope so 🙂
Some decent sea trout are getting caught on Loch Eck, the one pictured above was caught on the fly last week (and safely returned), the weather is similar to last year for the competition, no rainfall forecast and bright sunshine too, not an ideal combination but fish are getting caught on the loch, so get out there and get fishing !
