Sunday 23rd October saw the last match of the year fished on Llandegfedd reservoir. This was the last of 6 matches fished throughout the year, usually two or three early season and the same nearer the end, missing out the busy competition schedule that a lot of Welsh anglers are involved with mid season.
The Fishec/PSM league is fished to a league scoring system where teams of four anglers participate for the best combined scores on the day. For example, if each members of one team come 1st, 3rd, 10th and 14th their combined total score (28) would give their team position and the same as individual over 5 matches (give or take between two for individual attendance).
Over the past 5 years the comp has been getting better and better with more and more teams participating, and the standard of Welsh anglers increasing ten fold. I guess this is due to anglers fishing more competitions and along side some of the best Welsh anglers.
This year the fishing on llandegfedd has been outstanding all year round with the competition this year producing its best results with the final comp rod average hitting 8.11 fish, and the lowest average of the whole comp being a respectable 5.05. Fourteen teams, 56 anglers took an overall rod average of 6.39 fish, which is a fantastic accolade for the fishery and anglers.
