AT-TEFF Rivers Fundraiser – River Dee, 16th May 2021
20 May 2021
Sunday 16th May saw the start of the 2021 AT-TEFF Rivers Fundraisers, held in lieu of the usual National qualifiers & Final and set up to raise money towards Team England Fly Fishing. The first match was held on the River Dee at Llangollen with 10 entrants. All were fishing for a £75.00 prize for first place in either of the morning or afternoon sessions. With variable weather conditions the preceding week, the anglers’ talk was of tricky fishing conditions with not many trout gracing the nets. This played out in the competition with only 9 trout between 10 anglers.
In the morning session David Bradley took top honours with 2 fish of 30cm and 26cm, giving him the top spot with 106 points. The afternoon session’s top honours went to competition newcomer Richard Baxendale who caught 2 trout for 83 points.
Thank you to everyone who supported the match & TEFF. Thank you to Peter Scholes for doing a wonderful job running his inaugural match and to Paul Page in helping set up the qualifiers. Thanks also to Llangollen Maelor Angling for hosting.
