15 th River Dee European Grayling Festival 2014 LLangollen, Wales


It was a real pleasure for me to be part of this year Grayling festival held on the River Dee in Llangollen – Wales. Now safely back home I`m glad to write a few lines on what was it like. No doubt this friendly competition is becoming a major event in Europe now with 33 teams participating from all over the continent and some top anglers it is entertaining as well as educating. This year 879 grayling were caught during the weekend. Biggest catch went to Hywel Morgan with its 50 cm grayling. Top rod was Mike Drinan with 39 fish. Congratulation to the rest of the winner which you can see in the result list posted below. My team consist only of 2 persons me and Terry Bromwell as my dear friend Alex Djukic from Bosnia was denied visa… We couldn`t win without him but we did our best and we finished 9 out of 33. It was honest for me to fish with you Terry, thanks for all mate! Next year we will try harder. I have no complains the organization was perfect.

Many thanks to Ken Bothers, Martin Dixon, the local man Max who gave me the lift back, the English Army Vets team. It was a pleasure to have such a discipline controllers! Thank you all guys! Thanks to Hanak for sponsoring such an event.

I am looking forward to see new and old friends next year in Llangollen.
