With some large Salmon being reported caught on the Dee most weeks, it is pleasing to announce an exciting development for all anglers fishing the River Dee from 2009.
The large fish catches have caught the imagination of that well known, innovative former chairman of the river Dee board, Mr John Foster from Park Estate, who has decided to donate a trophy.
The Park Trophy, as it will be known, will be awarded on an annual basis to the angler who has landed the heaviest fish of the season from the river Dee that is verified.
The trophy will be kept by the angler for a year and will be returned to the river board office for the following year's winner to collect.
There will be a press release at the time of the award.
