The last two trophies were awarded to their recipients at the Annual Dinner which was held at the Argyll Hotel last Saturday evening.
The Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy was awarded to Bill Rankin and Allan Miller, for the most club waters fished with fish being caught.
And the Peter Manson Award went to John Pickett for the most fish being caught at Dunoon Reservior
Member Bill Rankin caught three sea-trout from one of our rivers, one at 3lb’s and two at 1lb, a one pound fish was returned…. Well done Bill ! Just goes to show there are quality fish about, maybe this will get the members off the sofa and up the rivers. 😉
“Another excellent way to learn more about your waters is to participate in river cleanups or work parties that aim to improve facilities. Besides making new friends you will be helping the club and benefiting from other members experiences. Ultimately though, to get the best from the Club waters, you will have to spend a lot of time not just fishing but walking and looking to find fish.”
Conservation limits for Atlantic Salmon
Members please note that NO salmon may be killed on our waters after 1st April 2016. Mandatory catch and release (all methods) is required.
This is specified in the Government policy for Grade 3 rivers as detailed in
“The Application of Conservation Limits for Atlantic Salmon”(17 December 2015) and “The update on the package of conservation measures” (9th January 2016)
The result for the “Jimmy Docherty Rover Challenge Trophy” is shared this year between Bill Rankin and Paul McLean, well done guys ! The trophy was donated by Joe Docherty in memory of his father Jimmy, a member of this club in the early years.
