PSUK Fly Fishing

I’ve been approached by Tony BARCLAY who is the new PSUK north east regional secretary for the PSUK fly fishing section.
He has asked me to forward an email to all in the hope of raising a Durham Team. We currently don’t have one and he says as such, missing out on regional/national comps, 35% discounts on Aiflo Tackle and discounts on various lakes, ponds, hotels around the country.
Serving officers, support staff or retired are all welcome to take part in the comps but we would need a formal Durham Club.
Please come back to me, Kev Woodcock, if interested or forward if you are aware of Durham police fly fishermen past and present.
