KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY: Brian James (Senior) all but swept the board at this year's Clwb Godre'r Mynydd Ddu annual awards, including the Ceiriog James Memorial Cup for Club Fisherman of the Year 2013 by last winner, Brian Junior.
Fishing club Clwb Godre’r Mynydd Du held it’s annual presentation night at the weekend and once again the James family reeled in the awards across the generations.
Youngster Cory again claimed the Junior Fisherman of the Year award, but it was grandfather Brian who netted the majority of the awards.
On top of a host of awards, Brian was presented with the Ceiriog James Memorial Cup for Club Fisherman of the Year 2013 by son Brian Junior – last year’s winner.
Brian also scooped the inaugural Kevin Lewis Memorial Cup, presented in memory of Kevin, a huge supporter of the club who passed away earlier this year.
Kevin was a regular at club events and enjoyed nothing better than taking his grandchildren on the reservoir trips. The award has been donated by Kevin’s family for the best performing fisherman - junior or senior - on Kevin Lewis Cup day, junior or senior.
Dennis Evans won the title of stillwater fly fishing champion.
Next year, the club intends to present the cup to the winner of an open competition on the Usk reservoir, the only qualification needed to enter is to raise a sum of money for our chosen cancer charity on the day.
The club is hoping to encourage angling clubs and local businesses to support the event next June and help raise money for a worthwhile cause
Clwb Godre’r Mynydd Du would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the year.
The club would also like to thank the organisers of the awards night, which was followed by a buffet and music by the talented Scott Davies.
Special thanks must also go to Brian James (senior) for collecting sponsorship from neighbours and works colleagues – their generosity meant that all junior participants went away with gifts of fishing tackle as well as their trophies.
