The Angling Trust reports: 

Scotland Secure Gold in the International Fly Fishing Association Rivers International

Friday, June 22nd, probably the most difficult conditions this season in terms of conditions for fly fishing. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales met on the River Ure to contest the IFFA River International on the magnificent Bolton Castle Estate in North Yorkshire. The harsh reality of the results suggests indeed that the conditions were hostile, despite the conditions each and every angler gave their all and it was Scotland who prevailed and took the gold medal.

Team England was ferociously captained by Fred Bainbridge whose boundless energy drove the entire team, which included three new caps, Gilliaum Vermeulen, Del Spry and Mark Harrison, such that even this comparatively inexperienced team was always going to be a threat. Fred’s intimate knowledge of the Ure, and tactical prowess was shared with the team from the day he was made captain and the team also benefited hugely from the experience of veteran dry fly master, Jonathan Barnes.

The draw for starting pegs did not aid England’s cause, but then a draw should never be an excuse. The standard at international level, on rivers, is now higher than it has ever been, and vastly experienced England manager, Jeremy Lucas commented “In my own observation I witnessed an exemplary performance, both in the build-up preparation and the international itself, of each team member. This includes the perception and experience of our seasoned reserve, Scott Nellins. It was heartening to see them go out there, with the entire range of methods and fly types at their disposal, with strength throughout a team – which was biased towards the inexperienced at this level – and then to see such a performance.”

The morning sessions were generally poor for England and the team found themselves in last place at the lunch time break. In such testing conditions avoiding the blank was incredibly important, but unfortunately for England, through no lack of effort, they recorded a couple. However, Jonathan Barnes secured two first placings in his morning sessions, while both Fred Bainbridge and Del Spry secured one second placing. Although with the afternoon to come, England were still confident they could recover and move up the table.

To a degree, England showed this as the team romped away to two firsts and two seconds in the third session, but the river had also ‘died’ by this time. Clear skies and bright sunshine meant conditions failed to improve, while a strong downstream wind developed making conditions even more challenging for all anglers on the water. The final session came down to avoiding the blank and England’s Mark Harrison took two fish, enough to win his section in very challenging conditions. Despite the team registering measurable fish it wasn’t enough to challenge the other nations for the title and Team England finished in third place as the event came to an end.

The ever popular and magnificent competitor Terry Bromwell, of Wales, to great applause, won the Moc Morgan trophy for the top individual, while his team fished hard they could only manage a fourth place. Ireland pushed the overall winners closely and had the consolation of the Mike Childs trophy for the day’s biggest fish (42.9cm), though it was Scotland who stole the day.

Jeremy went on to say “On such tiny things do international fly fishing championships hinge. Had Jonathan Barnes caught a fish in his last session, he would have won the day. Had the single fish caught by Fred, Gilliaum and Del been a little bigger, they too would have massively influenced the results. Finally, the best team on the day always wins, but Team England performed admirably, all the way back to the moment it was formed on last year’s National Final, and each member can hold his head high with pride. It was a great privilege to be with them throughout the campaign. Our congratulations go to Team Scotland on winning the event and to Terry Bromwell and Brian Russell on their individual achievements.”

Results: 

Teams: 1st, Scotland; 2nd, Ireland; 3rd England; 4th Wales.

Individual: Terry Bromwell, Wales, with six placing points. Top England rod, in 5th, was Jonathan Barnes. Other Team England placings: Fred Bainbridge (Captain), 11th; Del Spry, 15th; Gilliaum Vermeulen, 16th; Mark Harrison, 18th.

Please note Tom Finney caught 8 fish during the match however his first 5 fish were disqualified after an official inspected his fly and found the barb was not fully crushed down. In line with AT TEFF rules, fish caught prior to and during the session where the official inspected the fly, were removed from Tom’s score card which reduced Tom’s overall catch of 8 fish to 3 fish which were caught in the afternoon. The local organiser reported the infringement to AT TEFF, the incident was reviewed by the AT TEFF executive and a final decision made. Tom’s score minus the disqualified fish was still sufficient for him to take 5th place, and to qualify from the heat and progress to the South Regional Eliminator.

2018 Rivers National

We have been very fortunate to have been offered the Appleby Angling Association waters of the River Eden to hold a Qualifier and the National Final for 2018. It is our hope that we can use these waters for many years ahead, with Elite Performance Programme (EPP) sessions, Qualifiers and National Finals, and the possibility of the IFFA Rivers International in 2022. Rivers with such potential are extremely difficult to find in England, and to retain these, long term, has proved historically challenging. The experience we have in 2018 is crucial to keeping the Eden as one of our AT TEFF waters. The populations of trout and grayling are entirely wild.

Dates have been set as follows:

Qualifier: Friday, 20th April – R. Eden, Sandford – from Black Syke Bridge upstream to Warcop (trout only; from 12 to 20 competitors) STOP PRESS: Qualifier Cancelled. Due to insufficient applications by the closing date for entries, the Eden qualifier has been cancelled. Please note that the National Rivers Final will still go ahead on the Eden, as scheduled.

England River National Final: Thursday-Friday, 27th-28th September – R. Eden, Sandford – from Black Syke Bridge upstream to Warcop, plus Holme Farm/Crackenthorpe – from Colby Laithes (confluence of Hoff Beck with the Eden) upstream to Holme Farm Bridge  (32 competitors)

In both these events (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.
