AIRFLO WORLD BANK MASTERS OPEN FLY FISHING CHAMPIONSHIPS sponsored by IAN BARR FLY FISHING
Th Innnis Fly Fishery qualifiying heat for this event was held the following day after the Innis Spring Cup. Now bearing in mind 554 rainbow trout were caught in the preciding days fishing those fish are going to be a little bit wary of chasing flashing lures of any sort let alone take it. So with the conditions very similar to the previouse day just a little bit colder the 4hour session commenced at 9.30am. Eleven anglers fished the designated Sterrick Lake so with pegs well spaced apart there was plenty of room to cover all angles. All competitors realized early on this was going to be hard fishing a lot of concentration needed to cash in on any little tugs that came your way. With only the top three anglers to qualify and go through to the Final which is to be held at Elinor Trout Fishery in Northamptonshire and with prizes including £2000, a weeks holiday, costa polarised glasses and various other tackle the pressure was on. The results are listed below well done to all who persevered!
