Round 5 of the AMFC League has now completed.
Matches were fished with four fish taken then a further 8 fish catch and release, final bag weights were calculated by adding 2lb for each released fish.
Group 3 and Group 1 both fished Draycote Water on 21st and 22nd of September respectively. Draycote produced some excellent sport with fish on or near the surface taking dry flies, boobies and nymphs. Hoopers proved a good choicer of dry pattern – but something scruffy seemed to work. Washing lines were effective with fish taking the booby or nymphs, although chasing when flies were pulled the takes came once the flies were stopped and sinking.
Group 1 achieved a rod average of 8.5 and Tunbridge Wells took the top spot with total weight of 158lbs 6oz. This included a 4lb 5oz fish caught by Tom Davis and the best bag of 27lbs 13ozs for Mark Tremain-Coker
Group 3. had a rod average of 5.5 and the day was won by EPFA (English Police) with a totaL Weight of 89lbs 4oz. Best fish went to Steve Owen with 5lb 3oz rainbow and best bag was taken by Rich Watkins who had 25lb 15ozs, both fished for EPFA
Group 2 fished their round 5 match at Pitsford which had been a very different day exemplified by the 1.2 fish rod average. The day was won by the Greylags who managed to catch 12 of the 37 fish caught on the day weighing in at 23lbs 15ozs. Dave Ogg of the Greylags had the best bag at 11lbs 15ozs but the best fish was caught by Stu Capes of RNRMAA (Royal Navy and Marines) who hooked a 3lb 4oz rainbow.
