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.
