Fur & Feather 2017

31 Dec

Well done to those that made it to Sharpley for the 2017 DFF Fur & Feather.

9 Anglers caught 21 fish so well done especially Top Rod John Hartland… Chad still has the Trophy so will get it presented soon.

Makes a nice change to have a photo of Chalky as he normally takes all the photos…here he is skimming one over the ice….   Oooooh    Errrr     Ha Ha

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and here’s to a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2018

Blow away the cobwebs and those extra mince pies and see you next Friday at Sharpley Springs for our 2017 Fur & Feather.


I haven’t managed to get hold of  Simon regarding  a group payment so we will just have to go with the flow when you get there.

Meet at 9.00-9.30am for a 10.00 start and finish at 3.00pm.
