We have a new name on the Millennium Trophy this year. The competition for Millennium Trophy for Junior members was held on Sunday and our congratulations go to Thomas Johnson for the best fish of the day a 1lb Brown Trout.
Here we see Thomas with his winning fish and The Millennium Trophy. Remember the name, we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Thomas.
This years Junior Competition for the Millennium Trophy will be fished this Sunday (May 19th).
Junior members wishing to take part please meet at the Jubilee Car Park ready for a 2:30 PM start.
The river was recently stocked and promises to be in prime fishing condition, a great day to be had by all.
With effect from today May 1st 2019 we regret that Willington District Angling Club members are no longer able to fish the Ferryham Waters on the Rivers Wear and Browney which we have previously accessed through an agreement with another club. That club has now ended the lease agreement with the riparian owner meaning that we no longer have access.
The club is always interested in new opportunities for our members and would be pleased to hear from members if they become aware of any fishing which may become available.
Our friends at Angler’s Lodge at Jubilee Lakes will be holding an open day next Saturday April 27th
Jim Fearn will be there with a range of Vision rods & Rio lines for both Trout & Salmon fishing.
He’ll be giving casting tips while anglers are trying the rods and he’ll also help anglers to match fly-lines either to new rods or to their own rods if they bring them along.
Need advice – Jim’s the man! It’s this coming Saturday from 10a.m. to 2p.m. Just call in. Always a good day and it’s free!
The link here will take you to details of an auction of fishing tackle from Gavin Cleminson.
Gavin was a regular fly fisher who sadly lost his battle with cancer, his daughter is holding a fund raising auction selling off his tackle. The best wishes and condolences of the angling community go out to his family and our hope is the auction will be well supported.
After much huffing and puffing the new bye laws were finally confirmed this February. If you’re not aware please use this link to familiarise yourself with them
