We are delighted to offer the commemorative FishPal Lockdown Winners mug in recognition of the 2020 fly tying contest, featuring winning entries by Mike Reynolds, Ranald Hutton and Craig Duncan.
The covid-19 pandemic has been a real test of mettle for everyone, and although the disease is serious in nature there’s still plenty of room (and indeed necessity) for a little light relief from the situation. So a few weeks ago, as an antidote to the doom and gloom being broadcast just about everywhere imaginable, FishPal decided to come up with a fun, fly tying competition to help fishing fans through their lockdown blues, and you all took to it like fish to water, if you’ll excuse the pun.
The competition was wide open to all and sundry with a choice of either creating a salmon/seatrout or a trout fly.
The winning flies were announced a couple of weeks ago and it is with great pride that the Fishing Mugs team has been tasked to design a mug honouring the three winning entries. So it’s “well done” to Mike Reynolds, Ranald Hutton and Craig Duncan. We hope you like the finished mug.
