Hampshire Three Fly Challenge
Date:Saturday, June 16, 2012
Location:Meon Springs, West Meon, Hampshire
The Three-Fly Challenge is a fishing tournament that will test your skills and catching ability as you will only be able to use three flies (one at a time), these will be provided on the day: Kites Imperial dry (3 points per fish); Black buzzer (2 points per fish); GHHE nymph (1 point per fish).
Points will be awarded according to the fly used and the weight of the fish, i.e. a 3lb fish caught with dry Kites Imperial would score 9 points (3 points x 3lb = 9), a 3lb fish caught with a pheasant tail would score 3 points (1 point x 3lb = 3) etc. The angler with the highest number of points will win a new Sage rod. Many other runners-up prizes. A raffle will be held at lunchtime.
The Meon Springs fishery is a beautiful stillwater nestling in quiet valley amid the chalk downs near West Meon in Hampshire. See the Meon Springs website for more details and the photograph below.
