Macclesfield Flyfishers Club

Club Competition

The Club holds an annual fishing competition at the start of June on Ridgegate Reservoir. This is primarily intended as a bit of fun/social event for the club members. The competition is run over two hours, competitors can keep up to 2 fish and must cease to fish on taking the competition limit. Very simply the heaviest fish on the night wins.

The 2021 event was contested by 15 Club members, and was won by our Treasurer, Mike Fennell with a rainbow trout of 2lb 5oz. The runner up was  Scott Barber with a rainbow of 2lb 1oz.
