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 !
The final results of the Reservoir Pittman Competition 18th September thru 25th September 2016.
23 members entered the Competition, 11 members attended the Weigh-In.
The heaviest fish – Ron Ganley 5 lbs 1 oz caught Sunday 18th September.
Heaviest basket – Mike Lindop five fish for a total weight of 17 lbs 5 ozs caught Thursday 22nd September.
Lee Lindop was second with five fish for a total weight of 15 lbs 7ozs
Some nice catches weighed in so far in the Pittman Competition, Peter Manson (above) weighed in with 13lb 11oz on the second day, got a feeling that score will be hard to beat … good work Peter 🙂
The winner of the Outings Trophy for this year was Bill Rankin, who also caught the heaviest fish. Well done Bill 🙂
