This just in from Mike Marshall:

"Hello BFCC Casters,

Sunday was an almost perfect day - for holiday makers, but not casting! We experienced
almost continuous sunshine, it was humid in the morning and less so later-on, but the worst
part was an occasional puff of breeze from the north east or east followed by completely
'dead air'. The net result was that it was almost impossible to turn the line and leader over.
Tough is hardly an adequate description and distances suffered, however, those present all
seemed to enjoy their day. Results were as follows:

#5F - Mike Marshall 114' ; Andrew Bagshaw 106' ; Alex Titov 103' ; Mick Bell 101' 7" ; John
Reynolds 100' ; Carl Malpass 97' 10" ; Kevin Knight 93' 11" ; Roger Miles 87' 8" ; Stephen
Lindley 75' .

#7F - Alex Titov 121' 2" ; Carl Malpass 117' 9" ; Mick Bell 115' 10" ; John Reynolds 107' 7" ;
Andrew Bagshaw 99' 10" ; Roger Miles 98' 3" ; Kevin Knight 96 11" ; Stephen Lindley 84' 9" .

T38 - John Reynolds 167' 9" ; Andrew Bagshaw 157' 7" ; Kevin Knight 150' 10" ; Mick
Bell 149' 8" ; Stephen Lindley 143' 9" ; Roger Miles 140' ; Carl Malpass 116' 7" .

T120 - Alex Titov 178' ; Mick Bell 169' 1" ; Andrew Bagshaw 148' 3" ; John Reynolds 144' ;
Kevin Knight 125' 5" .

Performance of the day has to go to Carl Malpass (15yrs), down from Durham, with his all round casting, but, in particular, his 117'+ in #7F. What, in the future, is this young man
capable of? It was very good to see Alex Titov (Russian spoken here) cast so well to win
#7F and T120, the benefits of hard work if ever I saw them. Andrew Bagshaw's PB of 106'
in #5F pleased him no end, particularly considering the conditions. New member Stephen
Lindley, from the Sheffield area, came down for some help with his casting, ended up 'having
a go' and cast 143' 9" in T38, incredible. Finally, it was great to see old friends Kevin Knight
and Mick Bell doing what their right arms were made for, after absenses due to the pressure
of work.

Sincerely,

Mike"

Actually mine didn't show... it was Andy who got the real savage one on the face - right across it! Looked bloody painful, as it swelled up into a serious welt immediately. In fact it looked like an old knife scar from his football firm days...

Must amend health and safety lecture to include "full face crash helmets advised for T120."

It just shows that the safety talk that J.R. gave at the start of the meeting was worthwhile. Goodness knows what might have happened if glasses/ specs was not worn.

Our next event will be here on Sat 11th july http://www.sportfish.co.uk/community/news-and-events/british-fly-casting-club-meeting-sportfish-reading---july-11th.

We will be casting the 5 and 7 weight events and, depending on wind direction, the T38.

As you see we are also offering tuition and running the distance badge scheme so you can come along and find out what the BFCC is all about.

Mike

I guarantee you will have more fun casting than at the CLA Game Show, no pressure just loads of laughs and you will no doubt with just a few minutes tuition you will get you PB cast.

This is just in from Mike Marshall,

Hello BFCC Casters,

This joint BFCC - Sportfish Meeting was a great success and our Club owes Jonathan Tomlinson and his colleagues a considerable debt of gratitude. Not only was their hospitality second to none, but they provided many anglers asking for tuition, Badge Scheme casters and a few competition entrants.

The weather was not particularly helpful with occasional drizzle and a moderate westerly which was, uavoidably, slightly across the casting line. However, such was the general enthusiasm, it did not cause a problem and some very good distances were achieved, particularly for Badges, where there were some very proud recipients.

Results:

#5F Distance - Alex Titov 115'; Jonathan Tomlinson 112' 1"; Mike Heritage 111'; Tony Bennett 99' 6"; Ronald Girnus 94' 6"; Steve Kemp 93'; Terry Jenner 84' 8".

#7F Distance - John Reynolds 136' 2" (congratulations PB); Jonathan Tomlinson 128' 3"; Mike Heritage 124' 1"; James Evans 117' 3"; Roger Miles 106' 6" (congratulations PB); Tony Bennett 102' 7"; Alex Titov 100' 8"; Ronald Girnus 98' 10"; Steve Kemp 96' 5"; Steve Fox 85' 3"; John Kelly 74'.

25yd Badges - P R Coker, D J Edwards, Steve Fox.
30yd Badges - M J Williams, Steven Davies, Matthew Gregory, Vince Granata.
35yd Badges - Ronald Girnus, James Evans.
40yd Badge - Peter Mcleod.

For an example of triumph over adversity, nothing beats our newest member Stevie Davies,
who struggled up from South Wales with a broken hip. Over three periods of tuition, casting
from a chair, he ended up casting in fine style with double haul. What, I wonder, would he be
capable of when fully fit - keep up the good work Stevie?

It is now under very serious consideration that we hold the same Meeting again on 10th July
2010, of which more later.

Our next Meeting is at Brentwood on 18th October 2009.

Tight lines and long casts.

Sincerely,

Mike (Marshall)

Oh Yeah, PS

There will be some pics on the BFCC web site when I get them and work out how to put them up.
