Burrator Fly Fishers Christmas Supper 2015

BFF members and wives gathered at the Jack Rabbit, Derriford for the Christmas Supper on Monday 14th December. The Jack Rabbit always has a very warm and cosy feel. There is a reasonably varied a la carte menu and we also had the option of the Christmas 'Festive Menu'.  Mark Clarke, who left the BFF when he moved away earlier in the year, very generously donated £50 towards the wine bill.
Our Chairman Peter presented prizes for various achievements throughout the year.  The prizes were as follows:
Pat Power - best trout from any water - 6lb 15oz Rainbow from Newhouse Fishery. Pat received a bottle of whisky and trout flies.
Mark Sinclair - best trout from Burrator - 5lb 10oz. Gets 'Geoff Riley' Trophy. Unfortunately Mark was not able to attend on the night to collect his award in person.
Mike Duckett - winner of the Christmas competition at Tavistock Trout Fishery with three fish for 8lb 4oz. Also won a bottle of whisky and trout flies.
Tony Hooper - winner of November competition at Burrator with two fish for 2lb 13oz. received a bottle of wine plus trout flies.
Bill Watson - winner of the Burrator Three Fly Competition. Gets a hand carved and painted wooden trout. Unfortunately Bill was not able to be present on the night to collect his award in person.
David Lye - winner of the Burrator 'best effort at falling in' award for full immersion in Burrator during the November competition. David was awarded a personalised bath towel!
A raffle was held with lots of prizes on offer.  The evening was declared a great success.
