EVENT HISTORY:

This is an annual event to honor and celebrate the memory of BUTCH JOHNS, the founder and visionary of Innis Fly Fishery. Dave's father, Clarence 'Butch' Johns, had a small parcel of moorland which he did not use which had a spring-fed river running through it. Dave's idea was to build a lake for his own personal use. With the help and support of his father and siblings the lake was created. After Butch passed away his son Dave decided to hold an annual friendly competition in his fathers memory. The event has been well attended and has been running now for several years.

EVENT RESULTS 2024:

Sunday 28th January, Innis held the 35th annual Butch Johns Memorial Trophy Competition. Thirteen anglers took part which turned out to be a rather difficult day to say the least. With the weather changing in the last 24 hours, the colder conditions put the fish off the feed. Forty fish were netted which gave a rod average of three. Peter Runnalls was top rod on the day winning the Butch Johns Memorial Trophy by catching an impressive 8 fish closely followed by Keith Burnett with 6 fish. Third was Paul Nottle also with 6 fish but catching on less pegs.

Thanks again to everyone for taking part in this special competition which continues to keep my Dad's memory alive.
We wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year,
Tightlines,
Dave & Theresa
