    The next BFCC Meeting is this Saturday 5th October 2019 at Bentley Cricket Club, Brentwood, Essex.

    We will have fly casting tuition from our excellent instructors, Mark, Mike H, Sekhar, Mike M, John and Dominic, who will be on hand for most of the day to provide advice.

    The casting competition events will be run all day starting with accuracy, then the 'heavier' gear (T120, S55g, T38) and after lunch the 5#, 7# and ST27. It could be a great competition to enter or be a spectator for as we have some top UK and international casters competing. As usual we will run three levels of the competition so that everyone has a chance to win their category.

    We will have a short AGM over the lunch break. Refreshments will be provided for sale during the day.

    For those interested in the World Rugby, the Cricket Club will be showing the England game.

    Look forward to seeing you there
    Tracy

    BFCC Meeting in Yorkshire on Saturday November 16th 2019

    The last BFCC Meeting of 2019 at a new venue for the BFCC - the Northern Fishing School at the Swinton Estate in Ripon. The School is run by one of our members, Marina Gibson, and we will run a full Meeting with all the competition events and excellent tuition provided by several of our MCIs. Also the BFCC Champion of 2019 will be announced after the competition events.

    BFCC Members get free tuition from the BFCC instructors and free entry into the competition events; day tickets for non-members are only 15 and juniors are free.

    Some of the Club members will be in the area for the weekend, so we'll hopefully get some fishing organised and have a social gathering on the Saturday evening. If you fancy joining us, then please let me know and I can provide more details, Tracy.

    For those concerned about the flooding issues in Yorkshire, the location of the BFCC Meeting is near Ripon that hasn't been badly affected. So if you fancy a day casting, socialising and chatting about fishing, then come along and join us.
    We have several MCIs on hand to provide fantastic instruction for whatever you need help with.
    Hope to see you there
    Tracy

    The BFCC casting events are now over for the year, Tracy will be working on next years calendar with the other members in due course. Uniquely there were casting records set at every competition event of the year, including the last one at the NFS with the stunning backdrop of the Swinton Estate house. It certainly wasn't a day for distance casting, however both the men's and women's accuracy records were beaten. Kei Okamoto extended his men's record and Tracy extended her women's best. Young George Clarke also increased the junior (under 13) T38 distance record that he set in Oswestry.

    The BFCC champion for the year was Kei Okamoto, a member of the Japanese world championship team, beating me on count-back after the points over the course of the year were tied.

    I'm aware that I tend to concentrate on the competition side of things (because that's what I do) however the BFCC days are not all about competing. At every event we have great instructors who are willing to help all those requiring tuition - from complete beginners through to those preparing to take instructor certifications (in fact a number of them are examiners for various casting organisations). So next year, even if you're not into the competition and just want some casting tips, why not consider coming along to an event.

    I look forward to seeing some of you next year, James.

    I'd really like to come along to the BFCC days but they are a bit far down, what's the nearest event to Scotland?

    Hi Al,

    The BFCC have run a few events in Scotland, a couple in Glasgow and one in Fintry. In order to put on an event they need someone local to take the lead in finding a venue and promoting the day locally. There is someone working on this but we're not sure when the event will happen. As such, North Yorkshire was as high up as the club ventured this year. Hopefully Scotland will be back on the agenda next year - there's some fantastic competition casters up there.

    James.

    Somewhere more central (Perth/Pitlochry) would be good

    I’d travel to anywhere in Scotland though, sounds interesting to see the competitors cast and pick up some tips and hopefully improve my technique.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.
