Annual Dinner

Thursday 9th February 2023 at The Honourable Artillery Company

As the result of expected rail and tube strike action on our original date making attendance a challenge for many guests, your Committee decided to postpone the dinner until early next year. This has come at some cost and we would greatly encourage anyone who would have been unable to go on 3rd November to book tickets for the new date.

The event will now be held on Thursday 9th February 2023 at the Honourable Artillery Company, Armoury House, City Road, EC1Y 2BQ and our guest speaker remains the renowned fishing instructor, guide and conservationist Marina Gibson. Marina is fortunate to have a job that entails travelling the globe to countless well known and not so well known fishing destinations. Marina is the Founder of the Northern Fishing School at Swinton Estate in North Yorkshire.

Tickets are £145 - dress code will be black tie. Tickets already booked for the original date will be transferred automatically to the new date. For those unable to attend next year, a full refund will be given. If you paid for your ticket via a table host, please contact that person who will arrange for a refund. If you bought your ticket directly, contact Hugh Evans our Treasurer (hugh927evans@gmail.com).

We will of course have the London Banqueting Ensemble playing during the evening and the bugler to entertain us as well as the live auction and raffle of mainly fishing related items.

2023 Fishing

There are a few changes to the programme which continues with most of our favourites as well as some new fisheries. Full details in the Fisheries section of our website.
The booking system is open from 08:00 GMT on 1 February 2023. The Mayfly restriction continues to be one booking between 15th May and 15th June. This restriction lasts until 2 weeks after booking start date to ensure everyone has a chance of booking a mayfly day.
We also include an updated fishery grading chart on the website to guide members, especially beginners, towards the most appropriate fishing. It will provide a grading by difficulty, wading as well as some information on the respective fisheries.
