The Greys Junior Bank National is a fly fishing competition for anglers aged 16 and under and is held on small still water fly fisheries throughout England. The competition offers low cost, local access to competitive fly fishing with the opportunity to win prizes at each of the heats and grand final and achieve recognition as the National Junior Bank Champion. The competition is supported by Sport England and sponsored by Greys Fishing.
The first heat will be held at Witton Castle Lakes on the 6th September – full information can be found via this link…
Keith Johnson, disabled angler, taking a moment on the lakes during his father’s memorial trophy competition. Keith was giving his daughter, Abbey, her first ever casting lessons, ten minutes later and what does she go and do – lands an impressive 2.5lb rainbow. Keith, like his father before him, is an accomplished angler so we guess it must run in the family. Well done Abbey!
The members of Willington and District Angling Club paid Witton Castle Lakes a visit today to fish-off in the annual K.D.Johnson Memorial Trophy competition. The anglers from WADAC along with some of our regulars took part in competition to see which angler ends up with the heaviest 3-fish bag.
