Report 25/04/17

Secchi disk Clarity 3m ; Water Temperature at 6ft 9.5C

In Heat 1 of the SANACC National Fly Fishing Championship on 18/4/17, 37 anglers weighed in 101 fish for 230lbs and returned a further 174. The actual rod average (using the mean weight of the fish weighed) was 7.43 fish for 16lbs15oz. However, returned fish were assumed to be 2lbs which lowers the calculated competition rod average to 15lbs 13oz. The cut off weight for qualification was 12lbs 11oz which indicates that a few anglers did exceptionally well. The top rod on the day was Tyler Hay with 25 trout. Tyler was fishing a midge tip with a washing line setup - fab and buzzers/diawls and shared a boat with Kevin McCabe who was 4th placed with 15 fish. They picked up their fish all over, Lochend, Out from Lochend, Butts, Hotel Bay……In second place was Neil Barret with 19 and Steve Bett was 3rd with 16.

Information is a little sketchy this week as a lot of people are practicing for the SANACC heat on Thursday 27th April and conditions have not been easy; very cold, very bright and very windy from the North. Over the weekend best bags were in Lochend and Hotel Bay, more recently the shelter of Gateside and Dog Isle from the north wind has led to good catches from these areas. Difficult to predict where the shelter will be though as the north wind is a swirly one.
