On the 6th of May, Newplatt Flyfishers hosted the annual Salmon & Trout inter branch competition. There were S&T members from Shropshire and Staffordshire together with members from the Cheshire branch.
A total of 15 anglers fished from both the boats and the bank and a total of 34 trout were caught, some anglers catching 8 trout. Only 2 trout per angler were allowed to be killed and at the weigh in the heaviest bag was awarded to Mr D. Kettle, Chairman of Staffordshire Branch and the Team event was won by Cheshire Branch. All guests were very impressed by the the venue and remarked on the quality of the fish.
The Cheshire Branch will be hosting the Salmon & Trout Association inter branch fur & feather competition at Newplatt on the 11th of November.
