LOCALS WIN THE FERRYLOUPERS TROPHY ON HARRAY

17 local anglers and 11 Ferryloupers plyed their trade on the Harray Loch on the evening of Tuesday the 22nd May, fishing for the Ferryloupers Trophy. A cold east wind, never a good ert for angling, blew for most of the night, making it uncomfortable for the fishermen and putting the trout down, and difficult to tempt.
Many anglers sought the shelter of the east side of the Loch at the start, with Ballarrat, Ess Holms Nistaben and Bankhead popular. One or two boats headed straight for the weather shore and these anglers found fish straight from the off, giving them a bit of an advantage
Best basket of the night was weighed in by Norman Irvine, putting 7 fish for 5lb 12 ozs on the scales, with runner up,  Neil Chalmers with 7 for 5lb 5ozs. Others who mastered the tough conditions included Kenny McLeod with 7 for 5lb 5ozs, John Leask with 6 good fish for 5lb 3ozs and John Munson with 6 for 4lb 14ozs. Heaviest  fish was also weighed in by Norman and went 1lb 4ozs.There were calculations to do for average weights per team, with the natives averaging 2lb 12 3/4ozs, and the Ferryloupers averaging 2lb 12 1/2ozs, very close indeed, but the locals won giving Norman the Ferryloupers Trophy, which I know will delight him no end.
Norman and John Leask fished the weather shore at Peter Spence’s and Tenston shore, with The Hulk and White Cat being their best patterns. Bankhead was good later on,  as was Pontooth. Other patterns given a mention included Peach Muddler, Erlend’s Cat, Olive Snatcher and Boris.
Next week we have the delights of that other West Mainland jewel, Stenness Loch, to look forward too, let’s hope it continues its slight improvement shown last season.
