On Sunday June 7th, 2009, the Fishing For Everyone Ladies Fishing Club held their June meeting at Chatton Trout Fishery, Chatton.
Three new members joined the club for the event and an excellent and informative fly tying talk and demonstration given by Alan Young from Hardy & Greys Ltd kicked off the day, giving the girls the chance to see how Trout flies are tied and to ask questions about fly tying and how to fish certain Trout flies.
In the afternoon a fun competition took place between the Hirst Park Trout Ticklers and the FFE Ladies Fishing Club.
For many of the ladies it was the first fishing competition they had ever taken part in and the day ended with the girls taking first place with a 10-5 win.
Catch and release as well as catch and keep were both on the cards and prizes were given out following the event with winner from FFE, Chris Foreman taking her prize (a framed selection of Trout Flies) for heaviest fish on the day. Kacey O' Grady from the Trout Ticklers took her prize for Top Rod of the Day for her dedication and enthusiasm and combined winners of Best Bag of the Day, Lee and Andrew Whitehall were presented with a free day's fishing at Chatton Trout Fishery.
A great day was had by all and the FFE Ladies Fishing club would like to thank the Trout Ticklers, Chatton Trout Fishery and Alan Young for the day. We are looking forward to another event to be held later this year!
Our next ladies event will be held on Saturday July 4th at Witton Castle Lake, Bishop Auckland. Lucy is also looking to organise a Salmon fishing event as well as a sea fishing trip.
Any ladies interested in attending this event or for more information are to contact Lucy.
Fishing For Everyone have also joined Facebook under ‘Lucy Ffe’ – see you there!
