  1. Our Club, Colwick Fly Fishers enjoyed a very successful day out at Eyebrook on Saturday 28th.April. We comprised a mix of novices & experienced anglers and all caught on this occasion. Our thanks goes to our vice chairperson, Rosemary Gun vice chair CFFC, who arranged the event. The fishery manager Andy Miller is to be congratulated on his sheer professionalism and genuine support of visiting guests.
    It has been a long time since I have seen so many buzzers hatching and the hatch lasted all day. We also enjoyed the spectre of an Osprey, the bird glided gracefully back and forth trying to pick up a fish. If it had only asked me I’d have given it one from my catch of fourteen ( sorry Andy but I do like to look after the birds)as it did try within six feet of our boat.

    So if you really want to enjoy a days fishing with buzzers,located in one of the most scenic fishers, get down to Eyebrook. I’m sure Andy will make you just as welcome as he did us.

    As someone famous said,” I’ll be back,” and I hope it wont be too long.

    David Inglis,
    Chairman Colwick Fly Fishers Club.

  2. Log on to http://www.youtube.com/winnerweb09 to hear Charles Jardine talk about the Winnerweb Fly Fishing Challenge 09 and why he is supporting it. As you may know, Charles does not endorse many fly-fishing competitions, but he has given this one his full support because he believes this competition allows for a much more level playing field and democratises the event making it more open to everyone to have a more even chance of winning.



    The Winnerweb fly-fishing challenge will officially launch at the Spring Fly-Fishing Show at the Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire, on Saturday 28th February and Sunday 1st March, by the UK’s pre-eminent fly fisherman Charles Jardine and the Winnerweb team.

    Staged over five heats, two semi-finals and a final, the competition will be open to all, offering entrants a couple of different ways to enter. Entrants can log on to http://www.winnerweb.net and pay £1 to enter a game of skill; or book through the Winnerweb Challenge website and pay £35 entrance fee.

    Fly-fishers attending the exhibition will be able to enter the competition at the show by logging onto Winnerweb’s online competition website for a £1 stake for the chance to win a place in the heats.

    Initial heats will be staged over five weekends in April and May at the following venues:

    Blithfield, Staffordshire – 4th April 2009

    Eyebrook, Leicestershire – 11th April 2009

    Wimbleball, Somerset – 16th May 2009

    Stocks, Lancashire – 17th May 2009

    Scotland – Venue to be confirmed – 30th May 2009

    Semi-finals will be held in June with the grand final held on June 21st at

    Toft Newton, Lincolnshire.

    There will be £10,000 in cash prizes awarded and every competition entrant will receive a goody bag worth over £40, containing a fly box and set of flies, international hook gauge and fly lob. The top 40 contestants from each heat will go through to the semi-finals. Each of the semi-finalist contestants will also receive a premiere goody bag sponsored by top equipment manufacturers and retailers.

    “This is a fabulous venture and one which I know will excite fly-fishers the length and breadth of the country. I am proud to be associated with Winnerweb.” Charles Jardine commented. He went on to say. “I do not make it a habit to endorse competitions but Winnerweb came to me with such an exciting proposition. Some of our venues are going to be entirely new to competition fly-fishing and the rest are among the best in the UK. This event is going to be the ‘must fish’ competition for all fly-fishers who want to test their skills in some of the best waters available.”

    As a special prize, to the youngest qualifier in each semi-final and the youngest finalist as well, Charles Jardine is offering “A Day with Jardine” at a top UK fly-fishing location. A specially commissioned print of one of Charles paintings will be awarded to another successful angler.

    With new waters, great cash prizes and the chance to be the Winnerweb Fly-Fishing Challenge winner of 2009; plus the opportunity to get some great tips from one of the UK’s best fly-fishermen, competition places will fill fast. Fly Fishers who don’t want to miss out on this exciting new venture should ensure they book a place or enter the competition online to win a place at one of the five venues.
