Hi Dave good to hear from you 9 tubers out and everyone caught with several double figure bags mostly on sink tips midge tips and DI3 Tony B graced us with his presence from Geordie land and he was soon catching regularly on a DI 3 sink tip on a orange eyed damsel and cormorants I had mine in a similar set up on a midge tip. Bob C mate Malcolm has great delight out fishing Bob on a DI3 and orange eyed damsel booby. The Preston pair were picking the odd fish up on various flies and Dave C had an excellent 7lb + rainbow that did not want to come to the net. Andre after a slow start started catching regularly on a floater with gold heads. Rik stayed around the margins picking up Fish at regular intervals. John D had a difficult day but seemed to be enjoying himself and was good to see the speeding pensioner again (he had just finished a speed awareness course for jetting around the Welsh country side).
Hope to see another good turn out at the Bower on the 22/8 for the WOTR

The popular handbags match, ostensibly between Lancashire and Yorkshire but now including participants from all corners of the UK and abroad has been rescheduled! We're hoping to have our usual post match raffle and auction for a designated charity although what form this will take is still under consideration. Open to Bank, Tube and Boat anglers alike, tickets will be the usual Ladybower tariffs plus £10 per person entrance to cover breakfast bacon cobs and a donation to the charity.

Hello all,

We had a bit of a day out at lady bower the 2 gentlemen from Preston, Paul and Ian also had a day out. Ian had a genlemen out I think for his first time  in a tube.

The fishing was difficult in probably in near perfect conditions, with a bit of light drizzle on and off. Top rod going to Paul I think he ended with 7 or 8 fish taking them on a blue flash damsel and dawl bachs. Steve had 4 me and Brian had 2 a piece and Dave I think had 1, Ian had loads of tugs but I think none of the little devils stuck on. I am not sure if Ian's mate had any.

Richard Jamerson spoke to me about us going up on the 1st of August having a bit of a social, he was thinking about putting something on the web site.

Fishing aside it was good to see good mates out there again.

Sorry can't make this weekend but will make every effort to be there for the scheduled August 1st meet. I will also talk to Ifor to see if he will allow special dispensation for us to meet up at the Eyebrook on September 5th if that is of interest.

I have spoken to Steve F & Kev P, as far as competitions are concerned, this season is null & void. I am still trying to work out a solution for an end of season meeting/AGM with luck we should be back to something like normal by the end of October/beginning of November.
