The annual Pilgrimage against our friends from the Leslie (Wales)  and Llanilar (Scotland) Clubs this year will be on the Thursday the 21st and Friday the 22nd May at Grafham.

The event will be the usual laid back agenda with a practice day on the Thursday and the friendly match on the Friday. We have booked dinner on the Thursday evening at the Wheatsheaf in Perry, where the food is always excellent, and dinner on Friday evening will be at Grafham Lodge. All in it will be an enjoyable couple of days and anyone is welcome to fish. So if you would like a couple of days of very enjoyable and friendly fishing with the characters from Wales and Scotland you should join us.

Bank Fishing Day – The Arthur Sexton Trophy

Saturday 9th November 2019

Elinor Trout Fishery, Lowick Road, Aldwinkle, NN14 3EE

We end our season in the traditional manner with the Fur and Feather bank fishing day at Elinor Trout Fishery. This event is always popular and the fishing is normally very good with  some big fish often being caught. We ask those taking part to bring along a prize (max £10) and we then have a draw and everyone goes home with something.

Fishing is from around 9:30am until around 3:30pm depending on the weather.  There is no ‘weigh-in’ and the winner is decided on number of fish caught. No need to retain fish unless you want them, you can catch and release and keep a mental note of how many you catch.

Please let Mark Searle know if you would like to fish.

Invicta Tuesday Evening Club 2019

Our Summer Evening Fishing at Grafham will start on Tuesday May 14th and then every Tuesday, finishing on August 13th.

Anglian Water once again have agreed to give a free evening’s fishing to those who have done a course with Peter Hartley.

The Tuesday Evening League will run again, but participation is not obligatory. Scoring will be on numbers caught, no weigh in, best 10 results to count. Start time is 5.30pm, but there will be someone around until 6pm to organise boat pairings etc. for those who cannot make it by 5.30pm. A call from anyone arriving after 5.30pm would be appreciated. Peter Brewer and Paul Heavens will, as last year, be assisting with the running of the event. Draw for boat partners will take place at approx 5.15pm and where possible less experienced fishermen will be teamed up with experienced anglers.

An Anglian Water Season Ticket or day ticket will be required, also an Environment Agency Rod Licence. Evening boat cost is £7.50 per person. A 1 fish plus C&R ticket is available at £12.00. These show a £1.00 increase from last year. The Lodge Shop will be open until 5.30 pm.

Anglian Water have kindly agreed to provide a free boat ticket on any evening that 10 or more anglers are fishing. We will draw for this in the pub after fishing.

We go to the Wheatsheaf in Perry after fishing for a drink and sandwiches and chips. Please pay for sandwiches when you book in with the Shop on arrival. Cost of sandwiches is unchanged at £5.00.

The aim of the series is to have some pleasant summer evenings fishing at Grafham (weather permitting!), rather than a serious competitive event, also to give those who have done a fly fishing course the opportunity to gain some experience. We all had to start somewhere.
