DECEMBER NEWS 2017

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR INNIS VISITORS OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD!


 
 

CHRISTMAS FUR N FEATHERS 2017

Innis held its annual Christmas Fur and Feather competition on Sunday 17th December. 18 anglers were greeted with calm and mild conditions, early signs were that fish were feeding close to the surface. After signing in, a cuppa tea and a short briefing the anglers walked off to choose their spot. The competition was run on a catch and release basis, with anglers having to move on after catching two fish. It wasn’t long before anglers realised that fish were being caught all over carbis lake and that intermediate and floating lines were the order of the day. Most fish came to the hang after fishing a slow figure of eight. Up to the halftime break Plymouth angler, Mike Green, was in the lead with 9 fish, but was overtaken in the afternoon by two anglers, Alex Johnstone and Vince Barker, with 10 fish each. Alex Johnstone was the eventual winner with 10 fish picking up the prize of a Christmas Turkey hamper as he caught his first fish at 9.45am. Second place went to Vince Barker also with 10 fish but catching his first fish of the day alittle later than Alex at 10am and Third Place was Mike Green. A total of 83 fish were netted with a rod average of 4.6. The presentation meal and prize giving was held, just up the road from the fishery, at the Knightor Winery. We would like to thank all the Knightor staff for a fantastic meal and looking after us so well. A personal 'Thank You' from Dave and Theresa to Peter Runnalls for his continued hard work and dedication on the fishery. Thanks to our bailiffs Loren, Martin and Len. Our regulars will be aware that Len retired earlier this year so we wish him and Madge well but don't worry you will still get to see him around the Fishery from time to time. Thanks also to Dave Truran for his ongoing support and his help with fly-fishing tuition and finally a big Thank You to all our anglers for their support throughout the year...Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year

Inland didnt fair much better with damage to buildings, trees crashing down and flooding widespread. Dave and Peter had to clear fallen trees and large silt deposits from the torrential rain.
