Draycote  2017

Eight members of the TVFDG  met at Draycote Reservoir for a days Fly Fishing. Arriving at 9.15 we separated into 4 boats. The weather was blustery with heavy rain showers. Fishing prior to lunch was very difficult with only one boat making inroads to the days catch return.

At 1pm we met back at the docking bay for lunch. Which was enjoyed on the cafes balcony. We all received a very polite flea in the ear from the Manageress of the Cafe for consuming our own food on their balcony.

 The weather in the afternoon did not improve. However the catch returns did.Most fish being caught on buzzers near the surface. The winning boat was boat 31 with 11 fish in total caught. Thanks to Peter W for enjoying arranging an enjoyable day.
