Welsh Open Bank Fly Fishing Competition. 2013 (11th August 2013)


The Welsh Open is always a great occasion for the bank anglers and the 2013 Championship was no exception. It was a very busy day for anglers interested in competition as there were other important matches being run on the same day – but it was good to see so many keen bank anglers who had travelled far to Rhayader to compete on the day.

As usual the championship was sponsored by Harvey’s of Cilfynydd and  once again there were entries from many parts of Wales .

The local anglers certainly were to the fore and the Champion angler of the day was Lyn Evans who had a very impressive catch. I for one was astounded at the quality of the wild brown trout caught. The match had been a test of skill and perseverance and the champion was presented with the Wyn Kirby Cup by Dylan Harvey.

The winners of the Luron Shield for the top team of three anglers were Roger Lewis, Lyn  Evans and Phil Price – the Cwmdeuddwr Team.
