James Champkin wins 2014-15 DAIWA Specimen Fish Competition

After some considerable deliberation the SFCA Specimen Fish Committee have selected the 2lb 11oz Roach caught by James Champkin  as the winner of the 2014-15 DAIWA Specimen Fish of the Year.   The fish, pictured below, was caught from Scotland’s renowned specimen roach water, Lochnaw Castle Loch near Stranraer.


James wins the £500 Tackle Voucher generously provided by Wishaw based tackle giant DAIWA, who have kindly sponsored the competition since its inception.   He was presented his DAIWA voucher and his trophy during a days fishing at Magiscroft Fisheries near Cumbernauld by SFCA Records Officer, Fraser Simpson.


If you catch a specimen fish before 31st March 2016 and would like to be in with a chance of winning £500 worth of Daiwa Tackle we would love to hear from you.  Full details of how to enter the competition can be found by clicking the link below:
