Friday 20th April – River Eden – Appleby AA waters – Organiser: Jeremy Lucas – Trout only; from 12 to 20 competitors – In this event (and in any practice days), IFFA rules will apply. Additionally, there will be a strictly enforced rule to preclude the use of the ‘bung’. Any form of foam or cork bodied indicator fly will not be allowed. Dry flies used in methods such as trio and duo, should be flies that can reasonably be expected to take a fish. Also, ‘shuffling’ is to be completely avoided. There are species of upwing fly in the Eden which are now nationally rare. Appleby Angling members will be observing from time to time, while AT TEFF organisers will also be present. We have to be seen to be fishing this river in an environmentally responsible way – Details of practice day tickets and a map of the AAA waters will be published in due course. 2018 River Eden Qualifier Entry Form, Rules & Risk Assessment: 2018 River Eden Qualifier Entry Form, Rules & Risk Assessment (a)
