***Wye Championship*** - Now November 10th 2019.

This years River Wye Championship has now been rescheduled for November 10th. I have made contact with many entrants but still need others to contact me by phone, text, messenger or email advising me whether they are able to fish on this date. I am aware that this date may clash with the Riverfest final and is not ideal, but if for any reason you are unable to fish the Wye on this date then you will have the choice of a refund of the match fee(£30) or of having a guaranteed place in the 2020 event. It is likely that the match will have a reduced number of entrants this year which will have a knock on effect on the prizes awarded. Arrangements for the match are the same as originally advised but sections may change. 
The river will be closed to all anglers on Saturday 9th November.
Please share with fellow entrants who may not see this post.

Wye Championship 2019 - POSTPONED

***Wye Championship***- UPDATE-MATCH POSTPONED
Please read and share with fellow entrants who may not be on Facebook or have internet access.
With the River Wye expected to peak in Hereford on Sunday morning at over 5metres, it is with regret that the match will have to be postponed. It will now hopefully take place on Sunday 10th November. Anglers who were due to fish on Sunday should hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for the re arranged date. All details for the match currently remain the same, I just need to confirm with the Rugby Club that they can host us again. Anyone who is unable to attend on the new date has a choice of either having a refund of the match fee, or carrying over their ticket to the 2020 match where they will have a guaranteed place in that match. Anyone on the current reserve list will be offered a place on the new date if a space becomes available. Those that have had to cancel prior to the original match will be added to the end of the reserve list. Please contact me, preferably by email, if you are unable to fish on the revised date and how you would like to proceed. You can email me at john_hdaa@talktalk.net
Sorry for any inconvenience and financial burden this has caused but the weather is outside my control and I am afraid that conditions on this river can and do change dramatically over a relatively short period of time. Hopefully I will see the majority of you on November 10th.
