Thank you to Draycote and all members of the FDG who took part in our annual boat fishing competition for the 45th John Watts Trophy – a great day was had by all, despite some challenging conditions and the additional challenges of social distancing. The results are here.

The event was well-organised and went very smoothly – a tribute to the Draycote fishery and catering team, and to Lee Hooper, the FDG Fishing Competition Secretary and Chris Reeves, General Secretary. Sadly, John Watts was unable to join us this year so Peter Gathercole, our Chairman, presented the prizes. It was great to see so many of the usual competitors again, and a number of novices to the event. Hope to see you all again (and others) next year! In the meantime, don’t forget about the Elinor bank competition on 17 October.
