The annual match with Dunrod Angling Club was today 27th July, Dunrod won the day by 6 fish to 5, a great time was had by all who fished and the rain didn’t dampen their spirits. The Thompson Trophy was donated by a member of the Dunrod Club who was also a member of DDAC (for 67 years) sadly passed away recently, so it was fitting that it went back to them this year.
It was a beautiful day, conditions good but very bright most of the time. 10 members fished, total catch was 19 for 24lb. Best basket was Lee Lindop – 3 for 6lb and largest fish was Mike Ozinski – 2lb 7oz
On Wednesday 3rd July, the “Over 50s” competition was held at Loch Tarsan. The weather conditions were good with a light breeze in the morning but slowly it got cloudy and the wind got up and after lunch the wind became very strong with light showers. Seven members fished in the competition and 3 members weighed in with Hamish McInnes in 1st place having 4 fish for 3 lb 1 oz. Second was Mike Osinski with 3 fish for 3 lb 12 oz with the heaviest fish at 1 lb 2 oz. Third was Davy Landsburgh with 2 fish for 1 lb 12 oz. All 7 members who fished had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
A very disappointing attendance for the 4th day of this competition on 22nd June, where only two members took part and both returned to the boathouse at 6pm.
Lee Lindop had 7 fish for 5lbs and Ronnie Ganley with 2 fish for 1lb 10oz … well done guys.
