Burrator Fly Fishers Competition 17 June 2015

Seven BFF members (Pat, John, Terry, David, Stuart, Bob & Tony) met at Longstone to start the competition at 10am. Although it stayed dry throughout the day there were misty low clouds over the surrounding hills and tors.  A south westerly breeze along the south side of Longstone as usual made right-handed casting a little tricky. Some members persevered there but the majority went to the other, sheltered side of the peninsula.  Bob fished the area between the Sheepstor Dam and the main dam and was the only one to land any trout finishing with 2 rainbows of 1lb 6oz & 1lb 7oz.  He also had two brownies that he released.  Tea was brewed at the weigh-in at 3pm where Bob was declared the winner and we were joined by Peter.
