End of Summer Challenge September 2012.

22nd of September - End of Summer Challenge

This relaxed competition day started in the morning with Bacon Rolls, Teas and Coffees and the chance to enter a raffle. The day was set fair, with the temperature increasing dramatically from what was a near frost in the morning to a beautiful sun blessed midday and evening. 22 anglers entered on the day, with all those that entered catching fish. A BBQ lunch was served with sausages, burgers, chicken and salad with many compliments to the chef!

The raffle was drawn at 4pm. 1st prize went to Mr Riggs who won a Snowbee Classic 8’6” #4/5. 2nd prize was won by Mr Louth who won a couple of bottles of wine, and the 3rd prize of a selection of flies and Snowbee loop connectors was won by Mr Manning, one of the 4 anglers fishing the river.

The day concluded at 8.30pm with the biggest bag being taken by Mr Jordan with a total weight of 10lb 4oz and the biggest fish was caught by Mr Thirlaway at 6lb 12oz. Both anglers opted for a £50 voucher to be spent at the Manningford Trout Fishery Shop.

Many thanks to all those who took part and made the day the success that it was.
