YORKSHIRE - 12.04.19 Toft Newton Reservoir

There should have been eight competitors but two had to drop out at the last minute due to work commitments. The match was fished in
blustery conditions but all six anglers caught their six fish limit with a large number of fish returned after their limits were reached. This
made for a very tight match with only ounces separating all six anglers. The overall winner was Ian Colquhoun who caught all his fish on a 
blob and second was Steve Frakes who caught his fish on buzzers.

2019 Qualifiers - Ian Colquhoun & Steve Frakes.

There were some cracking catches during the day including some good size fish, Stuart Halford had a 10lbs 1ozs Brown and Ashley Robertson had a 9lbs Rainbow.

First place went to Gavin Murray with 18 fish, second was Stuart Halford with 16 fish and Goerge Ashton was third with 15 fish.

2019 Qualifiers -  P. Foot & J. Dench
WALES - 24.05.19 Llyn Clywedog

A total of fourteen anglers attended the above event and enjoyed some spectacular fishing as well as scenery and a fly past by two Chinook helicopters!!

A total of sixty-four fish were presented at the weigh-in at an average of 2lbs. The fish were caught on a variety of lines as there were two distinct groups of trout; one in the top two feet and another ten to twelve feet down.

The morning period fished very well for most and deteriorated later in the afternoon when the wind picked up. Albert Rodriguez took the honours for both the best bag (without time bonus) and the heaviest fish - a rainbow trout of 3lbs 2ozs.

It was a very close match with ten anglers catching limit bags in the morning, Again time bonuses decided the outcome, Bob Jones and Kieron Thomas caught their limits very early on.

2019 Qualifiers - B. Jones & K. Thomas
