Spring, Summer & Winter Programme 2017/2018


I would like to wish everyone a Happy New year and all the very best for the forthcoming 2017 season. I am very much looking forward to my third year as Chairman of RWFF and playing my part in the fantastic events the committee have planned for the winter and coming season at Rutland Water.

The winter programme is already underway and there are some great speakers and a 'Fly Tying' evening to come through January to March. We have another open day in March and we hope this will be a social meeting for members and also an opportunity for anyone to come and talk to us about the club or fishing at Rutland. Something we will do again this year will be the 'Bank Meetings' where members can fish together, share knowledge and have some informal coaching from the club if they like.

It would be great if we could bring non-member guests to these as a great way of introducing new members into the club. We also have lots of Junior events going on through the season and we are committed to making sure we see more young fly fishers on the banks. The previous season at Rutland will certainly be another 'tough one to follow' for many of you, but I am sure Rutland Water has much more in store for us in 2016.

Tight Lines, Chris Evans.
