High Cleughearn Fishery
23rd February 2020

High Cleughearn Fishery hosted our third and final fundraiser on Sunday 23rd February and the teams are grateful to them for providing the fishery and also wish to thank Tracey for looking after the catering.  The event was organised by Matin McCafferty and Andy Dunn on behalf of the teams.  Gil Farid did a great job in ensuring that there was a good head of different kinds of trout to be caught and secured fantastic local support by way of sponsors for each of the 28 pegs.  The day was cold with a strong chilly wind but compared to the driving rain/snow experienced over recent days we were lucky to see some sunny spells.  The cold didn't put the fish off and the 28 anglers caught a total of 252 trout (all returned).  Seven double figure fish were caught with three of them being caught by Bobby Quinn.

The morning got off to a quick start with Ben Robertson taking the prize for the first fish of the day by netting his first at 8.56am.  The prize for the first fish in the afternoon went to Andy Gibb who also had one of the doubles.  There were a few competitors who seemed to be constantly into fish and at the end of the session it was Brian Mackenzie who came out on top with 25 trout. William Riddick was close behind in second with 23 trout and Andrew Barrowman was third with 19.

Parkview Fishery Fundraiser
8th February 2020

The fundraiser at Parkview was organised for the teams by Wullie Simpson and was managed on the day by Rab Maxwell.  The teams wish to thank Wullie and Rab for their continuing support. They also wish to thank Jim and Edna for allowing us to use their Fishery and for providing great catering and a great day out.

The weather was kind to the anglers and although there was a cold blustery wind it stayed dry and the event was completed before the forecast storm arrived.  It was good to see so many competitors who regularly attend this fundraiser turn out again and it was never going to be easy to win with the 2016 winner (Ronnie Gilbert), the 2017 winner (Jock Kettles), and the 2019 runner-up (Paul Watt) taking on the 2020 winner of the Loch Team Fundraiser Cup (Derek Pozzi).  However it was the 2019 Natonal Champion Allan McLachlan who came out on top with 14 fish ahead of Derek Pozzi with 10 fish.  Local angler Dougie Couper was third with 9 fish.  Dougie has been ultra consistent at this event having been fourth last year and second in 2018.

International Loch Teams Fundraiser Cup
Loch Insch - 1st February, 2020

Three fundraisers have been organised starting with Loch Insch on 1st February followed by Parkview on 8th February and Cleughearn Fishery on 23rd February.
Well Loch Insch did not disappoint. Although things did start off a little slow first thing in the morning, this might have been due to the cold wind coming in over the fishery.  However as the day progressed the wind did drop slightly. But on saying that fish were being landed on all three lochs in the morning.  Lots of the anglers started off fishing the bung with bugs about 6 foot under the bung, the other line of attack seemed to be slow intermediate lines with nymphs and fabs. Sport did pick up in the afternoon with fish being caught steadily on all three lochs. Word on the street was it was going to be a close one and they were correct. A total of 450 plus fish had been landed and safely returned to the water. The top five places:-  

1st place with 16 fish Derek Pozzi
2nd place with 15 fish Andy Dunn
3rd place with 14 fish William Riddick
4th place also with 14 fish Jimmy Rhind
5th place with 13 Andrew Barrowman.
