Snowbee Team of four event at Siblyback

The team of four event is always a great competition generously sponsored by Snowbee.

Rainbow and Blue trout are the target species at Siblyback and anglers can expect fish up to around 6lbs. The competition briefing is always in the car park at Siblyback before anglers disperse around the lake. The lake is divided into an A and B Section with two anglers from each team fishing one section in the morning and then swapping to fish the other in the afternoon. Suitable time is given between sections for walking around or having a cup of tea and a sandwich! There is always a large amount of fish caught on the day with usual rod averages being around 3 to 4 fish per person. Snowbee provide some terrific prizes including the coveted leaping trout trophy which is stunning. There are also many South West Lakes Trust prizes in the form of day and boat permits. Food and drink is provided during the presentations which are held in the lecture room by the car park. A great social event and a great days fishing!
