Starting to get some interest in the competition. got lots of prizes, hope we get enough anglers to raise plenty of money!
Michael Edwards of Orvis has very kindly donated a Western 3 rod. 9' 6" for a six weight. I bought a 10' #7 when they first came out and love mine. plus the 25 year guarantee!
Gareth of St.Georges sporting is donating a fly logic reel worth £85, disc drag. looks very nice.
Not quite sure yet how much a bench will cost, if we don't raise enough money for one might be best to split the money between the two charities. Or maybe get a plaque put up in the lodge.
Be great if loads of people turn out!
Hope to get out on Saturday, choice of Pitsford, Elinor and Ringstead. So mild today bet it changes for the weekend!
Just must add congratulations to Richard and Allie on the birth of their daughter Isabella yesterday weighing 5lb.

Knocked up a couple of kinds of Bloodworm patterns. Never had much success with them but got to try something new now and then.
James Cove is an unknown quantity who comes from excellent trout fishing stock. Think we may have to handicap him somehow.....me i will probably struggle. I like to see fish moving, not that keen on "fishing the water". "smelly nets " indeed!
