2017 COMPETITION PROGRAMME 2017 LEADERBOARD


JOHN MUNSON PUTS SUSPENDERS ON TO WIN WILLIE WINDWICK CUP

Top rod John Munson

Harray had gained a reputation of late as being very tricky, Tuesday nights competition proved this  to be the case, and finding better quality fish was the key to success.
28 anglers fished this short evening competition, starting off at 6pm with a gentle southerly breeze and bright sun, the wind turning to the west and easing further as the night wore on. Depending on location, Caenis and sedge hatches built gradually until the sun went down and brought the fish to the surface to feed. Most fish were caught late on and many anglers commented that they could have done with another half hour at them!
Winner of the Willie WIndwick Cup, on what was a very frustrating night for many, was John Munson with a cracking basket of 7 fish for 5lb 9ozs with Kenny Adam in second place, who had 2 more fish than John, albeit smaller ones weighing 9 for 5lb 3ozs. A few others fared well, with Sandy McConnachie with 6 for 4lb 15ozs, John Leask with 7 for 4lb 12ozs and Stewy Leslie with 7 for 4lb 12ozs. Heaviest fish on the night was weighed in by James Bews and tipped the scales at an unremarkable 1lb 2ozs.
Johns successful tactics was fishing suspender buzzers in and around Merkister Bay, very much his home patch, whereas most of the other baskets came from deeper water drifts at Biggings, Kirkness, Clay Faceand Ess Holms on DI7, Sweep5 and the like, with Merky Hulk, Cod and Chips and other various mini lures doing the damage.
Things are getting a bit squeaky for a few anglers with only two competitions to go, the race to the Fisherman of the Year Trophy has now been reduced to two anglers, with Norman Irvine and Sandy McConnachie having it all to play for. Many other issues to be resolved yet in what could be a very interesting couple of weeks.
It's back to Boardhouse in a few weeks for the penultimate meeting, let's hope for some good fishing weather, and a good fall of daddies wouldn't go amiss!
