On 4th and 5th July, the 30th International Disabled Fly Fishing Championship was held on Llyn Brenig in North Wales.
|International Disabled Fly Fishing Championship – and a disappointing result for Wales.
This two day event, though friendly, proved to be highly competitive with anglers from the four countries giving of their best in quite challenging conditions.
At the end of the first day the Scottish Team was in the lead with England second and Wales third but at the weigh-in on the second day it became apparent that the fortunes of England were on the up when it was reported that Bob Cooper had netted ten fish.
The match was fished to a four fish catch limit and thereafter C&R – with one and a half pounds given for each released fish. The final results were as follows:
Heaviest Fish (Day 1) weighed 2lb 2oz – caught by Don West (England)
The Welsh Top Rod was Dai Evans, Tawe, with 10 fish weighing 13lbs 11¼ oz
A Word of Thanks – WSTAA and the Welsh Team are greatly indebted to a number of volunteers who helped make this year’s event a success.
