Dave Fowler Memorial

by Clevedon FWAC on

Dave Fowler was a founder member of the Clevedon & District Freshwater Angling Club and sadly passed away a few years ago. Every year and in his memory a competition is held to raise money for Charities. This year two Charities were supported, Friends of Clevedon Hospital and The Orchard Trust. 

The match was held on the River Kenn in Clevedon and there was a good turnout of 31 anglers. The forecast for the day was not good but thankfully the thunderstorms held off. With a mainly overcast sky it was predicted the fishing would be good but the fish had other idea’s.

Life member Andy Law only needed one big bream, a few perch and an eel to take the top spot on the day weighing 7 lbs 11 oz from peg 16. Mark Birdseye also had a big bream weighing 6 lb 5oz to take second place and Steve Warren was third with 4 lb 12oz. Fern Bonwick guessed the winning weight correctly.

Over £600 was raised for the Charities.

The Club would like to thank Cadbury Angling, Olivers Angling, Reel Fun and the Fishing Tackle Warehouse for donating prizes for the raffle and the Blue Flame Public House for their hospitality.
