Walter Lennie Cup win on Hundland for Malcolm Russell

Top Rod Malcolm Russell

 

The jungle drums were of the opinion that Hundland was not fishing very well so it was with a bit of trepidation that 27 anglers set out on a glorious sunny Wednesday evening to take part in the Walter Lennie Cup competition. A few fish were caught right from the start in the bright sunshine, but most of the action, if you can call it that, commenced once the currant bun fell behind some low lying clouds and remained there till the finish. The wind was mainly from the south-east but for a while it was all over the place before a brief calm period saw a return to the original direction. The drums were right though and it was a struggle for many with only 58 fish caught. Top rod, with 5 for 5 lb 4.25 oz went to Malcolm Russell. John Munson took 2nd place with 6 for 4 lb 3 oz, closely followed by Jim Adams with 6 for 4 lb 0.25 oz. Malcolm took the heaviest fish, a nice Hundland specimen less than an ounce of 2 lb. Successful tactics involved sink tips and intermediates with Hogs in hues of orange, madeira, Hare’s Ear and claret . No surprise there but I think it’s safe to say that small hogs were better than the big ones. Also mentioned in in the fly info dispatches was the Capuchin Monkey, a nice pattern from the Stan Headley stable and named after the wee monkey with a black body and a white capped head – except that the animal actually has a white upper body with a black capped head!! Anyway, the name stuck and Hundland trout enjoyed. The loch certainly did not deliver in quantity, but the quality of the fish was second to none, with a near 1 lb average for many. The loch does not handle too many boats well, especially if motors are on full throttle, and it was good to see most boats motoring sensibly. So early to bed on Friday night for a 7am start on Saturday. Tight lines!!
