Spring, Summer & Winter Programme 2016


I would like to wish everyone a Happy New year and all the very best for the forthcoming 2016 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.

Club Events & Functions 2016

January

 

07/01/2016

Club Evening - Get Your Tackle Out / Methods Evening. Want to tidy up your end tackle?  Dropper tangles, birds? nests and wind knots, break-off's?  We have all been there, some of us still are!  Maybe you can start the new season with a new leader set up, and reap the benefits.

 

It's billed as a Knots and Leaders evening but it's also a great opportunity for us all to share all those tricks and dodges we've acquired through years of fly-fishing experience.

 

It would be great to have some of our members involved, in addition to the usual crew, so if you would like to do a quick 10 min talk to the group just e-mail me ASAP at john91lee@btinternet.com with ideas (include your telephone number if you would like to chat further).

 

Otherwise see you there for what I'm sure will be a fascinating evening!! There are already a couple of treats lined up. Empingham Cricket Club.

RWFF Sponsored Charity Litter Pick Up - meet at the Rutland Water Lodge - 9.30am - 12.30pm - Bacon butty, bag some trash, blow away the cobwebs, admire the views, feel good to be out by the water again, and help a local cause.

10/03/2016

Club Evening - AW Forum & Sale Night.  You know that rod you haven't used for the last 3 seasons, or the reel that has been sat on the side-board gathering dust, the wading jacket that for some strange reason is now too small, or the fly line that doesn't match your rod?

Here's your chance to move them on to a new home, for a small fee you sell your surplus tackle, and maybe treat yourself to some more, after all as we all know, there is 'no such thing as too much tackle'.

Oh well, we can always listen to what AW have to say about the coming season and the highs and lows of the previous year's fishing - Empingham Cricket Club.
