 BigFish Competition

 

two anglers to share

             Trophy

Once again the Cheltenham and Gloucester FDG's yearly BIG fish competition took place at Springhill Fishery near Pershore.  This fishery is set in beautiful surroundings, being at the bottom of a lawn that rolls down from the big house. It has an island in the middle and Bredon Hill as a back drop.
For once we had a fine evening for the event and the lake was in great condition being very clear and no weed. The fish were only just under the surface and a variety of flies from buzzers to nymphs, etc were used with great success.
This year for the first time ever there was a dead heat!! The fish were weighed more than once and in the end they could not be parted, so the committee have decided by a unanimous vote to award the trophy to the two fishermen. The two names will be on the cup and each will have the cup for six months.
The two winners were Bruce Rhodes and Ray Trace with fish of 4 lbs
"Many thanks must go to our president Terry Beale for organizing the evening and also to Jonathon Bomford the owner of the lake".
