If you go down to Sterrick Lake today
You'd never believe your eyes!

For ev"ry fly fisherman that ever there was,
Needs to gather weed and stack in pods,
Cos todays the day,
Our anglers want to go fishing.


Eradication of the weed that has hindered the enjoyment of flyfishing on Sterrick Lake. Dave & Theresa would like to thank all those for helping and the effort put in in by so many Innis fly fishermen & visitors . As you can see there has been and still is a lot to do. The weather hasn't been all that kind either, with over 50% more rainfall landing on Cornwalls beautiful land in January alone. The call still goes out to all that can offer their help just liase by contacting Dave on 01726 852382. Any help is much appreciated and will make the task easier and quicker to get Sterrick Lake back on rod & line.

So Sunday 28th January saw the 30th Anniversary of the Butch Johns Memorial Competition. Twelve anglers took part with the preferred method being intermediate and floating lines. After taking a break for a pasty and a cuppa at lunchtime it was clear that several anglers were still in with a good chance of becoming the 2018 winner of the trophy. At the end of the day Dave Perks from St Columb edged out Mark Damarell and Dave Johns by catching a total of 8 fish and therefore winning the Butch Johns Trophy. Second Place went to Mark Damarell with 7 fish and Third Place went to Dave Johns with 6 fish. A total of 34 fish were caught and released throughout the day.
