Bristol Water Fisheries Evening Boat League 2023 – Run by the BRFFA

There is generous sponsorship from Bristol Water.  The winner of each round gets a free boat ticket (limited to one per entrant) and there are cash and boat prizes for the eventual winners.

The rules are simple. The competition is fished to Club Rules – floating line only, drifting boats, no anchoring, competition flies, no weighted flies.

It is catch and release only with any ties being decided by the time of your 3rd fish.

It costs £15 to join the league – and you can come along at any point as only the top 9 results count to the final result.

Entry is £24.50 per evening plus £5.50 to include food afterwards at a local pub.​

 This is an open event so non-club members are welcome and beginners are encouraged which gives them the opportunity to share a boat with a top match fisherman. Boat partners are 'drawn from the hat' before each match.
