I am sure you will all join with me in congratulating Vernon Wood for achieving his 35yd badge, and this in the less than ideal conditions of a changeable breeze, together with a high backcast being required. This was not a one shot wonder as several casts were beyond this excellent distance, in spite of some not too wonderful health recently and a consequent lack of practise. Keep up the good work Vernon!

In spite of the forecast for heavy showers, we really were very lucky with the weather with quite long bright spells, a blustery SW breeze and the odd very short shower. However, although the forecast did have an effect on the numbers attending, there was enough interest in our casting tuition to keep the coaches, Mike, Roger and myself quite busy. Wendy and Alan did their usual fine job at the booking table and sufficient funds were raised for the Club’s funds to make it all worthwhile and, also, to make a donation to the English Disabled Fly Fishers for whom the event was run.

It was also good to be able to welcome Members, David Fisher and Vernon Wood for tuition, with Vernon very successful on the Badge front – please see results.

We have been invited again for 2012, so please watch the Calendar.
