2021- 2022 Boat refurbishment programme…………

During late 2020 the club actively commissioned the services of a professional boat builder to start the process to completely refurbish our fleet of specialist fly fishing boats during 2021 and 2022.

The results have been impressive with the returned boats having bilge pumps and newly inbuilt buoyancy tanks.

Emi (our Club Lake Warden) inspects the first of 3 refurbished boats completed in 2021 with Ralph D a club member also looking on.

Boat 2, arrives back at the lakes.  Hard to believe it looked like below, once the boat builder had stripped her back to basics just 2 months earlier, before totally re-building her for us……………

2 New boats for 2021; The club also purchased two new Scandinavian un-sinkable plastic boats to add to the two purchased a few years earlier. These boats are really easy to row and suit the single angler well.
