Congratulations to all who took part in yesterday’s Junior Competition in what turned out to be some challenging weather conditions. Undoubtedly man of the day though was Connor Metcalfe, who not only had the heaviest bag, with four fish for 6lb, 11oz, but who also had the biggest fish of the day with a fine 2lb, 1oz brownie. In second place was Sam Currie, with an excellent four fish for 5lb, 8oz, and in third Daniel Lamb whose four fish for 4lb, 9oz just edged out Cameron Tait with four for 4lb, 8oz. Congratulations too to Joshua Stewart, who caught the second biggest fish of the day, a cracking two-pounder, which just missed out on the heaviest fish prize by one ounce!
It is very much to the credit of everyone who took part that all who fished weighed in, with 17 anglers weighing in a total of 45 fish for a rod average of 2.6 fish each.
As ever, we’d also like to thank our sponsors for their generous support, so hats off to Lawrence Hawley of Ultimate Fishing Supplies, Don Coe at Northumbrian Water, and Dyer Engineering, and to John Douglas for the catering.
Roll on the Seniors!
