2018 COMPETITION PROGRAMME 2018 LEADERBOARD


HARRAY FISHES WELL FOR WS SINCLAIR CUP

Top Rod Norman Irvine

 

The gale of last weekend churned up the loch prior to the competition on Wednesday evening, but a settled couple of days helped the stoor drop out and light winds on the night made for a good competition.
A good turn out of 29 anglers set forth at 6pm, most headed for the deep water off Nistaben and Biggings, with Pontooth and Tenston also popular. Within half an hour it was obvious the fish in the wide blue yonder were not playing ball, as one by one, the boats headed for the shores and skerries. There was a reasonable hatch of dark sedge which certainly interested the fish, and a change to top of the water tactics produced results for many anglers. About 9 o’clock, the wind strengthened and the fish definitely came on in style then. One angler reported taking 8 of his fish in the last hour.
If it’s top of the water and Hedgehogs are working, there is one angler sure to be there or there abouts , and that’s Norman Irvine, on a tremendous run of form, who weighed in the best basket of 11 fish for 8lb 7ozs. Ken Kennedy came closest with 12 fish for 7lb 14ozs, with Gary Ballantyne with 8 for 5lb 15ozs, Mo Rendall with 9 for 5lb 11ozs and Jim Harcus with 8 for 5lb 10ozs the best of the rest. Heaviest fish on the night went 1lb 2 ozs, from Sandy Mc Connachie.
Norman fished Orange Hedgehogs at Nistaben and Peter Spence’s, Ken caught all his fish on black and claret suspender buzzers, mainly in Ballarat.
With just two competitions to go, Norman is unstoppable on his relentless march to the top spot, but there are still places to play for in the two teams for next years south competitions, so, all to play for.
The OTFA will have a stand at the County show where all will be welcome to come and try and win the many prizes up for grabs, taste their very popular smoked Harray trout, and, form an orderly queue, purchase some of Norman Irvine’s Hedgehogs, see you there.
