Bristol Water Fisheries, home of the UK’s top fly fishing and pike venues, Blagdon, Chew and the Barrows have recently released their Bristol Water competition dates, a great chance to get involved with competition angling, see how the serious competition anglers set about their fishing day, or for the seasoned competitor to try and get their names on the cup.
Snowbee Competition – Saturday 13th April
Orvis Competition – Sunday 16th June
Hidden Teams Competition – Sunday 28th July
Hidden Pairs (Blagdon) – Sunday 22nd September
End of season Bank (probably) – Sunday 13th October
The past year has been a real blinder for Chew and Blagdon, with some cracking fish coming out, especially at the end of the season. This unseasonable weather we’ve been having of late means that the water quality will stay as good as it’s been on both lakes over the winter, with some great fishing expectations for the coming season! If you haven’t already and have a spare day in your calendar, take some time out and visit next year and you could be in with a chance of latching into something like this!
