The Spring meeting of the Association of Major Fishing Clubs took place at Bewl Water in Kent on a blustery spring day. The cold north-easterly wind did not make it easy for the 56 anglers from 14 teams who ventured onto the water.

Fishing was extremely tough at Graham on 7 July at Grafham for the fourth round of the Group 2 series of matches. Rod average was 0.47 and only 11 anglers caught any fish at all. The hot weather has finally turned the fish off at Grafham – a big change from the matches midweek. Hats off to the top rod on the day who was Frank Sumnall of Bewl who managed to take 3 fish on nymphs fished along the north shore. Mike Heritage caught the biggest fish on the day, a rainbow of 3lb 3oz
