Gareth Evans - 2017 Anglers World Fly Fishing Champion

Gareth Evans is the 2017 Anglers World Fly Fishing Champion

It was a very tightly contested match at Draycote Water this past weekend at the finals of the Anglers World Fly Fishing Championships with just a few ounces separating the top 3 Anglers.

Gareth Evans however prevailed and is the new 2017 Anglers World Champion with 11 fish weighing 22:11 – well done Gareth!

Meanwhile the 2016 Champion, Wayne Jones, had 11 fish for 22:10 and fellow Welsh International angler Gareth Jones had 11 for 22:09.

The cheque was presented by John Stephenson of FishandFly Ltd.
