Results – Dodleston, Cheshire. 25/06/23

The second Dodleston BFCC competition of the year was arranged to coincide with the World Fly Fishing Day and the SIM fly fishing festival in Castel di Sangro, Italy. The morning weather was bright with a steady breeze, however the forecast was for heavy rain later so the competition events proceeded at a pace to try and ensure the casters didn’t get a soaking. This didn’t work and the casters did get caught in a torrential downpour. When the rain arrived the wind also performed a complete 180 degree shift in the space of only a couple of minutes – obviously some results were affected by this shift, although the tapes were switched mid-competition to try and save some from being massively disadvantaged. As always the following results are in feet and inches:

#5 Trout Distance: James Evans 129.05; Steve Parkes 124.05; Andrew Bagshaw 120.02; Callum Bright 116.02; Howard Bishop 112.11; Stewart Ross 106.10; Tracy Thomas 104.08; Nigel Conlon 82.06.
