Organiser Martin Dixon reports: The final was fished in settled conditions after a very dry month. The nature of the Dee meant that the river level was held up, and after a two week close down hopes were high for a good competition.
Over the two days all the four beats produced around 100 measurable fish (over 20 cms). The successful anglers employees a full range of tactics: dries, nymphs, wets, duo and mini-lures were all successful for both trout and grayling.
New National Champion Mike Heritage fished the Golf Course area on Day 1 and the Bathers Beat on Day 2. On the first day he targeted mostly browns, and grayling on the second day.
The team to represent England in the 2015 Home International in Ireland is: Mike Heritage, Howard Croston, Andrew Scott, Mike Dixon, Simon Robinson and Lewis Hendrie.
I am most grateful for the host club, Llangollen Maelor Angling, who welcomed us to their superb waters, and to my main assistance, Mike Mason and Roger Johnson.
