This event was held on the waters of the newly merged Llangollen Maelor Club on 28th & 29th January. Thanks are due to the club for their invaluable assistance.
On Saturday morning the Dee was up and coloured, but it fell and cleared nicely in dry frosty conditions. All of the competitors caught fish over the 2 days, and a total of 188 grayling were caught and returned.
Largest grayling was caught by Alan Carloss of Nantwich, a belting fish of 45cm. The winner was organiser Martin Dixon, and the likely qualifiers for the National Final on the Dart were;
Phil Dixon 20 fish 7 place points
Mike Dixon 25 fish 9 place points
Graham Kennerley 12 fish 12 place points
Graham Willis 13 fish 14 place points
Glen Wright 10 fish 16 place points
Chris Ragin 6 fish 20 place points
