This Sunday the senior river competitions will be held.
Dr. Chester Senior Competition – Sunday 25th July (Senior Male Members). Sadly, Dr. Eddie Chesters, a former club president and well known angler passed away this winter. This will be the first opportunity for the club to remember him through fishing the competition set up in his name many years ago.
Also, we see the first outing for our lady members to fish the Angela Moralee Shield. This is a new competition introduced in recognition of the growing number of women enjoying the sport of angling. Angela Moralee has been long associated with the club through Low Field Farm, our major Riparian Owners and great supporters of the club for many years. We are delighted to recognise this by naming the new ladies competition in her honour.
Those wishing to fish these competitions please meet at Jubilee Bridge Carpark (Postcode – DL15 0DJ), for 2.30pm, for a 3pm start. These competitions have in the past been sponsored by The Anglers Lodge at Jubilee Lakes, who have in the past donated some fantastic prizes.
The weather forecast for Sunday is still looking warm with some showers forecast. As always fish care is critical during any competition and this will be discussed in more detail on the day.
The club waters have been well stocked with some lovely fish this year, COVID did delay this a little and rod numbers have been low on the water, added to an ever improving stock of large fish a great day is in store for all.
There are also some fantastic Grayling in there but while they might make your day even better please remember they do not qualify for the competition which is for the largest Brown Trout.
It would be greatly appreciated and very helpful if anglers wishing to take part were able to confirm this to the secretary If you cannot confirm in advance you are still able to fish on the day, advance numbers will always be very helpful though, so if you can confirm please do.
