Bristol Water Fisheries Evening League 2019 – run by 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 International Loch Style rules – any line, 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 £10 to join the league – and you can come along at any point as only the top 6 results count to the final result.

  • Entry is £25 per evening and that includes food afterwards at a local pub.

  •  This is an open event and beginners are encouraged, giving them the opportunity to share a boat with  a top match fisherman.
