|Ladies Fly Fishing International Championship on Llandegfedd – Results
The Welsh Ladies F.F. Team was fishing at home this year and hopes were high that a gold medal would come their way.
The results were as follows:
England’s team members are well versed in reservoir fishing and although the Wales ‘fourteen’ had several practice sessions on Llandegfedd, the gold position unfortunately evaded them.
However there were jubilations within the Welsh camp when it was announced that Cheryl Jones was ‘Top Rod’. Cheryl also won the trophy for the heaviest fish.
In 2nd and 3rd positions were England’s Elaine Sherry and Martha Thompson who took well over seven pounds of fish each with Abigail Montgomery of Scotland in 4th position.
Warmest congratulations to England on their fantastic win
Unfortunately this year, Ireland did not participate in the Championship in Wales – but hopefully this will be rectified in time for next year’s International which will be staged on Bewl Bridge, England.
