The Eyebrook Fur and Feather Boat Competition was held on Sunday 27th October 2013 and heralded the last day of the boat fishing season at Eyebrook for 2013, all proceeds from the day will be donated to The English Disabled Fly Fishers Association. The fun competition was held in good spirit and forty anglers participated, it was not too long before the first fish of the day were being netted.

As the weather forecaster had predicted the weather would begin to play its part as the incoming winds strengthened, later on in the afternoon one or two boat anglers did succumb to the adverse weather conditions and many fished on till 4pm.

Following a swift weigh-in at the fishing lodge it was not to long until the function room was amass with anglers and visitors alike who had ventured out to support our worthy charity. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all who donated prizes for the raffle and supported this prestigious event.

The prize giving took place with The inaugural presentation of the Wednesday Night Boat League Trophy which was won by Dave Etty of Kettering, runner up was Dave Chadwick of Ashley and in third position was Steve Lawrence of Little Bowden, congratulations to you all from the Eyebrook team. And many thanks go to Jamie Moore of Eyebrook for all his efforts in organizing the Wednesday Night Boat League 2013

The presentation of prizes for the best bag of the day, runner up and best fish then followed. Mark Hunt of Market Harborough was the eventual winner with 8 rainbows for 14lb 6oz; runner up was Fred Kettle of Leicester with 6 fish for 9lb 15oz, and the biggest fish, which weighed 3lb fell to Uppingham rod Stuart Bilsdon, Very Well Done to All.....
