  1. Good report nice to see looks like a hard match” but so good to see the juniors at the prize table” all to fish for in the next match


  2. The new zone format for these competitions is brilliant. It certainly makes for a more level playing field and is a great way to spread the winnings out more across the board.

    Well done to all who competed on the day, particularly the junior members and the lads from Channel Anglers SAC who took the top spots in the team event and individually.
