A new 'Winter Series' festive fun fly fishing competition has come to Scotland, with heats being held both north & south of the border right up to Christmas.Allandale Tarn Fisheries in West Lothian will be host to a heat of this exciting event, which will be held on November 24rth. Qualifiers from each heat will fish the final at Chatton early next year. Organised by one of Englands well known anglers, Mr Jim Tuck of Fritznflies, this competiton is entering it's 5th year, however this is the first time this event has been brought to Scotland.
This is an unusual competition, as there will be no prizes for 1st, 2nd 3rd etc at the grand final. All you have to do to win CASH should you qualify, is catch as many fish as you can & for EVERY fish you land you will take home a percentage of the prize pot!..
Last year the prize fund total was £1200 which meant each fish awarded the capture with £15.50 straight into their pocket. This years prize fund is expected to be in excess of £2500!.. So as the saying goes, ' You have to be in it to win it!'.. Full details can be found on the Allandale web site at:
Allandale is also hosting fly tying courses over the Winter months. Please contact the fishery for more details or check out Allandale Tarns FaceBook page for more info!..
Tight lines!
