Bank House 2020

Twelve anglers fished the eighth bank qualifier of the 2019/20 season Bank House Fly Fishery, Lancashire. Cold frosty conditions greeted the anglers as temperatures dipped to minus five degrees the night before, however the lake remained ice free for the competition to go ahead.

There were six newcomers to this heat along with anglers who had entered qualifiers over the last few years. Billy Thompson was first into action taking the first trout of the competition at just after 9.20am and by 9.30 half the field had caught fish. At lunch 11 of the anglers had caught with it all still to fish for in the afternoon.

After lunch Graeme Bell got off to a flyer catching four trout quickly with Terry Wood also into the fish taking three trout. These two anglers led the way to the final whistle taking first and second place respectively. In total 77 trout were caught giving a healthy rod average of 6.5 with no blanks! There were many fish in the six to 10lb bracket caught.
