Tuesday Evening Social Fishing and League
Following the very successful first evening of the summer evening series, we have some good news from Angela Tarry:
Rutland Rangers are allowing the boat league anglers to stay out for an additional 30 minutes later than the usual printed time. From this point forward we will also do the same at Grafham so on a Tuesday the boat in times will be 30 minutes after the normal advertised times allowing you to take advantage of the sunset fishing.

A brilliant performance on the 10th May by Invicta member Tony Smith who won the East Midlands (Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire) Police qualifier at Carsington with 12 fish on a very tough day.
He has qualified for fishing the nationals next year at Bewl Water. What a great year Tony is having, he really is in winning mode.
………..The successes continued on the 14th May with Chris McLeod and Mark Searle winning the Philips trout championship on Eyebrook by 5oz. This pair’s match was dominated by newly stocked fish; it was fished to a 6 fish limit.
Mark Said that no matter where you caught fish they all came in at about 1 1/2 -2lb. All our fish came to buzzers either straight lining, washing line or on the bung. It was a very pleasant and relaxing day, my boat partner wasn’t bad either! The match was followed by a meal and presentation at the local pub.

Annual Dinner Report 2018
42 members and guests attended the Annual Club Dinner on 24th February, which returned to the Arundel Hotel this year. After a delicious meal and a successful draw, Chairman Mark Searle summarised what has been a very good year for the Invicta Fly Fishing Club.
Trophies were presented for angling achievements and Paul Stevens received the Invicta Trophy for his tireless work as Club Secretary. Alan Prevost was awarded a Life Membership for his massive contribution to the Club over the past 16 years as treasurer, membership secretary, dinner organiser and many others tasks. Congratulations and our grateful thanks to you both.
A collection was also taken which raised over £120 towards the Arthur Rank Hospice which is currently caring for Club member Graham Williams. Our thanks go to Alan Prevost and Mark Searle for organising a very enjoyable evening.
River Fly Fishing
Invicta FFC tries to offer occasional river fly fishing trips to members. Primarily these are autumn/winter Grayling fishing trips although occasional summer trout fishing is sometimes possible.
The number of anglers allowed on river beats is often limited and places on the trips will be on a first come basis. Anyone interested in trips can lodge their interest or obtain more information from Paul Heavens.

What to do if you catch a good fish
Two of the Clubs annual Trophies are for the heaviest rainbow and the heaviest Brown trout caught by an Invicta member on a day ticket reservoir.
If you catch a fish which you think may be in contention, please fill in the form and email Gary How and copy Mark Searle into the email. Alternatively the form can be posted.
The fish must be weighed and the weight witnessed by a second person and should ideally be accompanied by a photograph of the fish being held or placed beside something such as the rod handle and reel to give it scale. Brown Trout must be in season to qualify. Forms are available on the Trophy Winners webpage.
