INTERNATIONAL QUALIFIER 2018 EYEBROOK

Fished at Eyebrook on 5th September, with a cloudy start, brightening slightly through the day with a gentle Westerly breeze, and a maximum temperature of 19deg. The water was cooling down a bit from the hot summer, and fishing was getting decidedly easier, for some at least. The fish were still a bit shy, and there were several hard luck stories of fish showing, and pulling at the flies and not hooking up, but most were taken near the surface, on the usual flies, small boobies, blobs and nymphs. At the weigh in Mike Hill was top man, both with top weight of 14lb 1oz, and best fish at 2lb 8oz.  Every member caught fish, and rod average for the day was 3.6.

The team to fish for England in May 2019 at Lough Erne, Northern Ireland, is Mike Hill, Bob Cooper, Jim Watts, Trevor Ashby, Peter Mansell, Horace Wood and Stewart Hume. The reserve will be a first timer, John Salisbury, in his first year fishing with us, which is a great achievement.  Captain for 2019 will be Bob Cooper. If the mayfly play along in Ireland, 2019 could be a great experience for all the anglers, we'll have to wait and see.
