A message from our new Chairman
After another successful 2018 both fishing wise and strength of the club we now look forward to a fresh new year! We have such a fantastic club here at Rutland Fly fishers and I would like personally thank all the members for their continued support and also all the committee for their contributions to events and club activities. It really wouldn't be possible without the volunteers and on that note if you have interest in joining the committee and contributing in some way then please feel to contact me directly on: rutlandwaterflyfishers@gmail.com.

The main aim of 2019 for the Rutland Waters Fly Fishers is to continue to bring new people into the club and secure the future of the sport we all love. It is no secret that we face many challenges but I am sure that if all us made an effort to bring a friend or family member then we really could start to see the difference. We will be hosting our annual club open weekend on the 10th and 11th August so feel to use this event to encourage people we know that could join our sport and club. I look forward to seeing all of you over the 2019 season and as always please feel to send in ideas or suggestions as they will always be welcomed.
Kind regards, Jake Waterman, RWFF Chairman.
