Stormin Norman takes top honours on Swannay

Top Rod Norman Irvine

 

A good turnout of 31 anglers arrived at the Loch of Swannay on Sunday 6th May to find conditions looking excellent for a day’s sport on the black lagoon. Fish were seen rising off the site before the 12 noon start and as the day progressed it became apparent that some very good baskets were being taken. The weigh in at 6 pm told the story and a number of anglers were in contention for the Highland Park Trophy. Thorfinn Muir and Sandy McConnachie both had 19 for their day but it was Norman Irvine’s excellent catch of 17 fish for 13 lb 7.5 oz that took the honours. Heaviest fish was taken by Jim Adams at 1 lb 11.5 oz and winning the Gordon Grant Memorial Trophy. Best tactics on the day were pretty much a case of either a fast glass or Di5 or 7 sweep and fishing not too deep – with the Ace of Spades and its numerous variants widely mentioned in dispatches. The bottom end of the loch saw most of the action, but some good baskets were also taken up at Chrismo. It was good to see some of our newer competition anglers taking points, and also the return of some familiar faces to the competition scene. There were some notable absences on the day but Ken Kennedy’s excuse was that he was travelling south to meet up with his Scottish team members before heading off to Loch Mask to take part in the home international match there. Here’s wishing Ken and his teammates the best of luck and tight lines.
Let’s hope they bring back gold!!!
