Chairman David Little

Mobile / Text: 07802 312 887

David has fished at Bewl since it first opened. He liked the tranquillity of Bewl and surrounding area so much that he moved to Lamberhurst in the late 1980's and joined the BBFC committee soon afterwards. Although also an active golfer these days, you will still find him on the bank at the beginning of the season and out in the boats later in the year. David both organises and fishes for the club's 'B' team in the national major league events

Treasurer John Dunmall

Mobile / Text: 07818 034 936

John has been a coarse and sea fisherman from the age of 11, but took up fly fishing at Bewl in 2002 partly because you need less luggage (!), and mainly fishes loch-style. He has regularly fished in AMFC matches since 2005 and is also a member of the North Kent Fly Dressers’ Guild, the British Fly Casting Club, and is an associate member of the Game Angling Instructors’ Association

Membership Secretary Mike Shepard

Telephone: 01892 531 610 · Mobile / Text: 07931 767 869

Mike gave up fishing regularly when he left school in favour of "urban pursuits" and having a family until the early 1990's when Andy Lush sold him his first fly rod. He began fishing Bewl mainly from the bank in the mid 1990’s and has been a member of the Club since then. He has now held a season ticket for several years and particularly enjoys the freedom it gives him to come and go as he chooses

He ties flies very badly but effectively enough. In addition to Bewl his other fishing interest is in salt-water fly-fishing at home and abroad

Website Designer & Editor Marc George

Mobile / Text: 07956 535 808

Compared to the other committee members Marc is a trout fishing novice. He took up flyfishing late in 2005, joined Bewl Bridge Flyfishers' Club in 2006 and became a committee member in 2007. He enjoys bank and boat fishing, especially the late evening rises during the summer

Fly-tying has also become a part of Marc's trout fishing pastime and creating new patterns that catch, never fails to get the adrenaline pumping

Competitions Secretary John Benford

Mobile / Text: 07858 362 936

Since John was ten, his mum took him out to the river Eden in Edenbridge, Kent where he caught small stickle-backs with some maggots and a makeshift rod made out of cane. He has wonderful memories of hot sunshine and lovely countryside views

John started fly fishing as soon as he became married! He saw the Bewl Angle magazine and decided to book a casting session. After an excellent lesson he was hooked! He started fishing the banks of Bewl and was amazed at the help other anglers gave him. After a few months of fishing he was persuaded to fish from a boat. He loved it and joined the annual Bewl boat competition. This was an amazing experience that taught him so much. To further improve his fishing skills John volunteered to join the Bewl team in the AMFC competitions. This friendly environment is so much fun and allowed him to make some wonderful friends

To give something back to this wonderful club, John have volunteered to help organise the Bewl Bank and Boat competitions, these are held every year at Bewl reservoir. If you have not fished in this, we thoroughly recommend having a go
