Match Reports

Hi All Members

With the Covid-19 shut down we missed our spring pairs match which should have taken place on 26th April, but had to be cancelled. The suggestion is we have a winter pairs bank match in its place, on Sunday 1st November. If you would like to take part please get in touch by text, email, or WhatsApp.

With regard to the Boat Pairs Match to be held on 4th October the same applies with Covid-19 rules, 19 you may fish with your drawn partner, or others, or fish alone. I will do a pairs draw again using the bingo balls numbers for pairing , which worked well last time and keeps hands free from bugs. You may wish to fish alone.

I believe there may be a Fur & Feather Boat Pairs match on the last Sunday of the season before the fishery closes on Monday 30th November. This should be open to all if you fancy having a go.

Best wishes and see you hopefully on Sunday the 4th for the boat competition or on 1st November for the final bank match.

Hi All Members

12 DFFA members fished the Autumn Pairs Bank Match:

1st place with 4 fish was David Adkins and Brian Allwood

2nd place with 3 fish John Hanlon and Stephen Dewhurst

3rd equal were 3 pairs with 1 fish, Mike Nolan and David Rechtorik Neil Berry and Mark JJ,  Paul Walley and  Keith Jones.

A good result on a very sunny day so tough conditions for bank fishing. Great to see everyone.

Apologies for not reporting on the Gordon Griffiths One Fly Competition earlier in the year which took place on 24th July 2020.

12 members took part on a very hot Friday evening with the temperature in the high twenties.

1st place with one fish apiece were Paul Farrell and Richard Hanlon

2nd place - everyone else.
