Senior Competition

The senior completion was held on Sunday 30/05/17.

Eight local members attended but fishing was hard as the river was very low and clear with bright sunshine. 

Only two anglers caught fish big enough to weigh in, well done to Jimmy Nixon who took the first prize with a superb brown trout of 3 lb 11 oz and another smaller fish. Also well done to Malcolm Wilson who came second with two trout. 

Although conditions were very difficult it is worrying that so few trout were caught and some very experienced local fisherman failed to catch.
