If you would like to join the FBYC Angling group please join by clicking on the button below.
For those of you who would like to fish league, please contact me
If there are any youngsters mad keen, I would be happy to provide a site, both inshore and offshore.

This years league is still open on all fronts (South, West and Offshore Leagues) due to covid shutting it down early.
Very few legs have been fished so points are still low. Scoring is on the grand prix system so the winner on the day gets 1000 points, so with luck one can easily catch up.

Should anyone aspire to WP or National colours, this is the route to go,

Groggy
The term groggy means dazed and weakened or intoxicated, the way one might feel after he or she partakes in a goblet full of its root word grog, which is a mixture of rum and water. The term grog is a reference to a British admiral who ordered his sailors' rum to be diluted; he was nicknamed Old Grog because he wore a grogram cloak.
