A full report and results of this competition will follow in Fly Dresser magazine. Meanwhile, the team from Glasgow who always make a week of the event once again showed that practice gives you a big advantage on the match day. Despite the fishing being hard for most, the Scots lads quickly hit upon a method and refined it over their two practice sessions, enabling them to win easily on the day of the match. They landed 26 fish which was 8 more than 2nd placed north Kent and one behind them were the team from Thames Valley, Invicta. Biggest fish was a rainbow of 2lbs 10oz to David Bowie of Luggie bank and with Alistair Murphy of New Haylie taking the biggest bag it was a Scots clean sweep on the prizes. A great meal and convivial atmosphere followed with the prizes being presented by John Watts himself, membership number 01
