Loch Insch Fishery Fundraiser Report
52 anglers took part in the final Youth Fundraiser of the 2023 campaign at Loch Insch Fishery on Saturday 04/03/2023. Anglers drew a peg in the morning and rotated every 30mins, 5 pegs clockwise over the 2 ponds.
Fish were caught from when the first whistle was blown with a lot of anglers bagging up with their 5 fish limits from a peg. Fish were steadily caught throughout the morning from both ponds with anglers still taking their bag limits. By lunchtime a total of 450 fish were caught and safely released.
The anglers stopped for a warm lunch before starting again. The afternoon proved slightly tougher for some anglers but perseverance throughout the afternoon session produced a further 189 fish.
There were a few big fish caught over the course of the day and the biggest landed was 17lb 1oz caught by Lee Anderson. There was a total of 639 fish landed over the course of the day for 52 anglers making a rod average of 12.28 which is a credit to fishery owner David Murray on how the fishery is fishing at the moment. Prizes on the day were handed out from 1st to 10th place. The top 3 anglers on the day were,
1st James Litster 33 fish for 44 points
2nd Neil Scowen 31 fish for 41 points (9.34am)
3rd David Simpson 31 fish for 41 points (9.35am)
A number of the youth team were in attendance all day to show appreciation to the anglers and fishery for their continued support. The team walked round talking to anglers, taking photos, and giving the odd bit of advice over the course of the day. The team ran an auction and raffle before the prize giving which helped boost the total raised on the day. This amounted to an amazing £1400.
The Youth team would like thank Loch Insch Fishery and all anglers for their generosity and continued support. We would also like to thank all our sponsors and everyone for prizes and donations made towards the raffles.
A special thanks to David Murray at Loch Insch Fishery for hosting the fundraiser. We greatly appreciate all your efforts and support for the Scottish Youth Team.
Thanks to all.
Well done the Scottish Youth Team!
