Bass Fishing Trip 28/29th June

Seven WGFC members were joined by Mike Handyside, the well known angling journalist and salt water fly fishing specialist for the WGFC “Bass on the Fly” weekend on June 28th / 29th. The weather was miraculously perfect with the group catching more than 60 Bass over two nights. Many of the members caught their first Bass on the fly and for some it was actually their very first Bass. The fish ranged from some quite small fish of around 8 ozs up to 2 1/2 lb with most of the catch being around the 3/4 to 1 lb mark. Many thanks to Gary Davies for organising this and to all those who turned out and supported the event. It was really nice to make some new friends and enjoy a great weekend of fishing and share a good few laughs along the way. A special thanks to those who have donated to the Dee Salmon / Charity fund, I will notify the club when all the funds are in as to were the donations will be made.
